Visit Options

Group On-Campus Visit

We would love to have you bring a group of students and peers to visit our beautiful campus in Columbia, SC. Guidance/Career counselors, teachers, administrators, and students are all welcome! We offer tours, a complimentary lunch, chapel and class options during our group tours. Your students will also have an opportunity to meet with key faculty members as well as our admissions team about the admissions process and financial aid options. There’s a little something for everyone, and we cannot wait to have you here!

Personal On-Campus Visit

We also offer personal visits for students and their families, where they can see what life is like on campus! Students will have an opportunity to go on a campus tour, eat a meal on us in the dining hall, attend a class, attend chapel, and connect with key faculty members about their program. Afterwards, they will meet with an admissions counselor to discuss next steps and how to earn the best financial aid package possible.

Personal Virtual Visit

If an on-campus visit isn't doable, we'll come to the student! From the comfort of home, students can meet with their Admissions Counselor over Zoom. If they know the program they are interested in, a professor will also join the call to answer any questions..
