Your Time on Campus
Information sessions are a chance to hear from an admission director about the Block Plan, student life, and the admission and financial aid processes. Sessions are offered Monday through Friday year-round (with a few exceptions for holidays and office events), as well as on Saturday mornings in the fall. Information sessions tend to last about 45 minutes.
We offer student-led campus tours every day Monday through Friday year-round, plus Saturdays in the fall. Tours leave rain or shine and last about an hour.
We offer interviews on campus for seniors and transfers, and juniors are allowed to interview in the spring (generally beginning in March). Applicants should schedule their interviews before their corresponding application deadline. For instance, Early Action and Early Decision 1 applicant interviews should be completed before Thanksgiving. Early Decision 2 applicant interviews should be completed before Winter Break. Interviews can occur either before or after submitting an admission application. Students may interview only one time. Students living on the Front Range in Colorado are strongly encouraged to visit campus and have an interview. Please note that we are unable to guarantee an interview for walk-ins. Register in advance if you would like to schedule an interview during your visit. Please refer to tips on preparing for your interview. Click here to learn more about about application deadlines.
We offer the opportunity to visit a class and we will be happy to arrange this within the limits of our academic calendar. Under our Block Plan, most classes meet in the morning, so you need to be on campus by 8:30 a.m. to visit a class. Beginning in late March, we have large numbers of admitted students on campus and are therefore unable to offer this opportunity to juniors. We require reservations at least a week in advance for class visits and we do our best to match you with a department in one of your areas of interest. This opportunity is available only to the student; because of space restrictions parents may not attend.
Additional information and expectations:
Please note that although we aim to place you within your preferred academic department, the purpose of our Block Plan class visit is for you to experience and engage in a typical, three hour classroom discussion. Though prior academic preparation is not expected, we encourage you to actively participate as appropriate during your class visit, remain attentive, and refrain from using unapproved electronics.
Seniors or transfer students can stay overnight in the residence halls with a student host for one night, Sunday through Thursday from mid-September through April. Unfortunately, because so many high school seniors request overnight visits, we are not able to accommodate juniors. Reservations for on-campus overnights must be made at least two weeks in advance. We are unable to offer overnights on Friday and Saturday nights, or during the week of block breaks. Overnight visitors (Monday through Thursday) check-in at 4:30 at Cutler Hall. Sunday visitors check-in at 4:30 at Worner Campus Center.
You might want to schedule an appointment with someone outside of the admission office while you are on campus. The financial aid office representatives are happy to meet with you, or we can put you in contact with professors or coaches so you can arrange those meetings directly.
