Group Visits for High School Students

Thank you for the opportunity to introduce your group of high school students to Valparaiso University. Please note that campus tours are not available during the University’s Spring Break, February 28 through March 15.

We appreciate your interest and to best coordinate your visit, the Office of Undergraduate Admission has established the following guidelines:

Advanced Scheduling

All high school group visits must be arranged three (3) weeks prior to your visit. They are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, with one group visiting per day on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday when classes are in session. The group visits start at 9:30 a.m. Central Time and can include an information session. We do not host groups overnight.

As a result of the increased number of groups requesting campus visits, the Office of Undergraduate Admission has established a policy to work with high school students and does not have the resources to host middle school or elementary school students.

Valpo will not host high school groups on weekends when facilities are limited, nor during final exam periods. We will do our best to accommodate your requested date.

Timely Arrival – Central Time Zone

Arriving on time is important. Please realize that our high school group visit start times work with our students’ class schedules. In the event of a late arrival, your tour and information session will likely be modified.

Group Ratio

Chaperones will be required to accompany high school groups at all times during the visit, including during the campus tour. Our required ratio is one (1) adult per 10 high school students. (We can only accommodate 55 total people per visit.)

Cancellation Notice

If you find it necessary to cancel your visit, it is essential that you give at least three (3) days notice. Failure to do so may limit future schedule availability for your group.
