Experiencing CMU in person is one of the best things you can do while searching for the right university. We believe your visit to campus should help determine if CMU is the right fit for you, so we want you to get the most out of your visit.
We offer five types of visit opportunities, plus a handful of on-campus special events throughout the year.
Spend 45 minutes with an admissions counselor learning about campus culture, academic offerings, admissions requirements, costs, and scholarships. Following the presentation, you will be led on a 90-minute general campus tour with a CMU student Campus Ambassador who will share his/her perspectives and experiences on campus. Presentations and tours are held twice per day, Monday through Thursday, beginning at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Select Fridays and Saturdays throughout the year are reserved for you to attend an admissions presentation and tour, dine in a residential restaurant, and interact with an admissions counselor. These programs are identical to the daily visits, but conclude with a complimentary lunch.
Education and Human Services Discovery Visits
One Tuesday morning per month, the Admissions Office hosts a special visit day just for students interested in programs offered by CMU's College of Education and Human Services. Attend a 10 a.m. admission presentation by an EHS representative and a student question/answer panel, take a tour of beautiful new EHS facilities not accessible on a typical tour, and enjoy a complimentary lunch in one of our residential restaurants while you interact with staff from the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, the Leadership Institute, and the Honors Program. This unique visit will provide you with a much more targeted experience. You will get all the information offered at a general visit, plus the specifics you need to decide if a major in one of the EHS programs is right for you.
Science and Technology Tour
On the second Wednesday morning of every month, the Admissions Office hosts a unique visit opportunity for students interested in academic programs offered by CMU's College of Science and Technology (CST). Attend a 10 a.m. presentation, take a tour of CST facilities given by students in CST majors, enjoy a complimentary lunch in a residential restaurant while speaking with students and staff of CST, and meet with CST faculty from specific majors/programs. Explore your interest in science and/or technology and see how CMU can provide opportunities for your future success.
Transfer student visits
The admissions process is unique for transfer student,s so one visit day per month is dedicated to this special population. All programs begin at 10 a.m., but the day of the week varies by month. Attend a presentation by one of our transfer coordinators who will assist you with understanding the admissions process as it relates to transfer students. Take a tour of campus with a CMU student Campus Ambassador and enjoy lunch in one of our residental restaurants while you interact with faculty and staff from a variety of CMU's academic colleges.
