We are pleased to host group visits for schools or other groups of prospective students when staffing levels allow and facilities are available. Group visits are offered on Wednesdays. To schedule a group visit, fill out the form below and a member of the Admissions Office will be in touch with you.

Group Expectations and Guidelines

  • All students in the group must be high school level or older. Middle school groups may plan a visit by contacting University Recreation and/or the Museum of Cultural and Natural History or the CMU Center for Charter Schools if they are a certified Charter School Academy.
  • Groups must be adequately chaperoned. We require one chaperone per 20 students. Please review the Group Visit Code of Conduct.
  • A roster of students attending must be provided in advance or groups must allow for the time during the visit to complete contact cards. 
  • Unfortunately, Central Michigan University is not able to sponsor all or a portion of the cost for transportation or meals for group visits not initiated by the CMU Undergraduate Admissions Office.

Admissions Welcome Presentation

A group visit to campus includes an admissions presentation and a 90-minute walking tour of campus.

Walking Tour

Led by a student Campus Ambassador, groups will walk through most of the campus making stops at Park Library, a residence hall room, Student Activity Center and academic buildings. The tour takes up to 90 minutes and groups will walk up to 2.5 miles. We encourage groups to dress appropriately for the tour and for the ever-changing weather conditions in mid-Michigan.

Cancellation Notice

If you find it necessary to cancel your visit, it is essential that you notify our office as soon as possible. Failure to do so may limit future schedule availability for your group.
