Campus Tours

Campus tours will be offered Monday through Friday at 11:00 a.m. or 2:00 p.m., and select Saturdays at 11:00 a.m. only. The campus visit will include an information session, led by a recruiter and/or student ambassador, about admissions requirements, financial aid/scholarships, and campus life. Walking tours are approximately 90 minutes long, including the information session.

Additional Tour Guidelines 

  • All guests are required to pre-register for campus tours in advance.
  • Tour requests must be made a minimum of two weeks before your requested tour date. We will be unable to accommodate tours at short notice. This will allow us the opportunity to properly prepare for your arrival.

  • All individuals under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a Parent/Guardian.
  • Chaperones MUST accompany all individual and group tours.
  • There will be limited access to the inside of buildings.
  • Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate walk-in tours.
  • Not adhering to the above guidelines and time designations, without proper notification, within THIRTY (30) minutes of your scheduled tour, results in automatic cancellation.
