Schedule a Virtual or On-Campus Visit

Virtual and On-Campus Individual Visits

The College for Women Admission Office is available for virtual and in-person visits on campus. Get all your admission and financial aid questions answered, learn why our academic programs are top notch, and hear about internships, collaborative research, and study abroad options available to our students.

Please take note of the following precautions that are in place for individual on-campus visits:

  • Face masks required inside all University buildings

  • Social distancing of at least six feet maintained at all times

  • Complete a Visitor Health Screening Checklist upon arrival to campus

  • We ask that student visitors bring four or fewer guests. Guests must be family members.

If these expectations are not feasible for you or your guests, we ask that you please choose a virtual visit when you complete the visit request form. For virtual visits, you can chose from a phone appointment or a video chat through Google Hangout or FaceTime.

Request a visit online or call the admission office at 651-690-8850 or 800-656-KATE (5283). We look forward to visiting with you!
