College Visits

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.

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.
