Tips for College Visits
Schedule your visits at least two weeks in advance. Ask for appointments with an admissions representative, financial aid counselor, and a faculty member in your area of interest.
Check out college websites. You’ll find admission requirements, academic and social information, and photos or a virtual tour. You may even be able to schedule a campus visit.
Visit while the colleges are in session. You won’t get the true flavor during breaks or finals week.
Be prepared with questions to ask. It’s important for YOU to ask questions, not just your mom or dad.
Talk to a faculty member about upper-level classes in your anticipated major. This will help you understand the coursework that will be required and the degree of difficulty.
Ask the financial aid counselor how the college may offset tuition costs and about college-based scholarship applications and deadlines.
