Campus & Virtual Visits

For the fall 2021 semester, our Admissions staff will be on campus Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Our team works remotely on Tuesdays and our office will be closed to the public. Please see this page for our office hours. Due to COVID-19 health and safety protocols, only escorted visitors are allowed on campus. To access campus, Admissions visitors must register for an on-campus activity or in-person appointment with an Admissions team member. Admissions visitors will be required to submit a Health & Safety Visitor Acknowledgment Form. All visitors will be required to wear a face mask while on campus.

If you are unable to visit our campus in person, please check out our virtual campus tour.

We look forward to welcoming you to campus!
