As students begin the college search process, campus visits are an extremely important part. Students can set up campus visits by going to the admssions website of the college/university they intend to visit. There are two types of campus visits: individiual or group. Group visits are in groups of 10-20 students and parents, sometimes larger and are intended to give students a general feel of the campus. Individual visits are one on one, with the student and parent, and can be more tailored for a better experience. Students can request to meet with an advisor in the academic area they are interested in pursuing, meet with a financial aid representative, and even the housing department. Campus visits whould be set up at least 7-10 days in advance.
Students who are going on a campus visit must fill out the form below and return it to DHS after the day of the visit.
