Plan a Visit

Don’t just imagine life at Hillsdale; live it. To schedule your visit, decide which option is right for you from the choices listed below. Remember, you are welcome to visit more than once!

Individual Campus Visits

Individual Campus Visits are tailored to your specific interests and are available most weeks during the academic year, Monday through Friday. Visits for tours and interviews only are available on select Saturday mornings. Weekday visits will take at least a half day and may include:

  • Campus Tour
  • Admissions Interview
  • Classroom Visits
  • Meals in the Student Union
  • Overnight stay in a residence hall
  • Meetings with coaches, program directors, or professors

Visits must be scheduled at least two weeks in advance of the intended visit date. The more time you can give us to plan, the better your visit will be. Parents will be included in campus tours, meals, and for a portion of the Admissions Interview. Overnight stays may be scheduled for one or two nights, Sunday through Friday.
