The Office of Admissions welcomes inquiries from prospective students regarding undergraduate admission. Through the admission process, the university seeks to identify applicants who will successfully complete a collegiate academic program. Admission is based on many criteria, including high school GPA or GED test scores, high school rank, the quality of coursework, college entrance test scores, personal essays and the extent to which the minimum academic preparation standards (MAPS) have been met.

For additional undergraduate admission information, visit the Admissions web page.

Visiting the Campus

Prospective students and their families are welcome to visit the Office of Admissions in Regent Administrative Center, room 125, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. (summer hours are 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.), Monday through Friday, except on holidays. Daily information sessions, walking tours of the campus and special all-day visit programs are offered. Although interviews are not used in the decision-making process, you are invited to visit the campus.

The best time to see the campus is when classes are in session (September through mid-December and mid-January to early May, with the exception of spring break); see the academic calendar for specific dates. There are dates when information sessions, campus tours and visit programs are not held due to holidays or university closures. It is important to check our website for the most current information.

Reservations

Reservations are required for all information sessions, tours and visit programs and can be made through our Admission Visit Programs webpage. There, you'll also find complete visit program descriptions, dates, reservation forms and campus maps. Visit program dates for future academic years are added to the website as they become available (usually in August each year).

Daily Information Sessions and Campus Tours

Information sessions with an admission counselor are held Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Following the information sessions are walking tours of the campus led by student guides, beginning at 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Combined information sessions and tours are also held at 10:30 a.m. on most Saturdays.

Campus Visit Programs

An excellent way to become acquainted with the campus is to participate in one of the campus visit programs specially designed for prospective students and their families.

These programs are offered throughout the year and provide prospective students and their families the chance to participate in information sessions, take a campus tour, learn more about residence hall life, talk with student and parent panels and meet with campus representatives, as well as attend classes or listen to a sample lecture. For more information about any or all of these visit programs or instructions on how to register, go to the Admission Visit Programs webpage or call the Office of Admissions.
