COLLEGE VISITS

College visits can help you decide whether or not a campus is a good fit for you.  They are also a way for you to demonstrate your interest in attending a school. 

  • Contact a school's admissions department a few weeks before you visit to schedule a tour
  • If you schedule a visit through a different department, be sure to stop by admissions before you leave and tell them about it so that your visit can be noted in your file.
  • JUNIORS are allowed 2 college visits 
  • SENIORS are allowed 2 college visits


College visits must be approved PRIOR to attending.

To obtain approval, complete the College Visit Request Form . You can stop by the Career and Couseling Center for more information.
