Graduate School Campus Visits


If you are considering one of our graduate programs, we encourage you to visit Valparaiso's campus and the Graduate School Office. If you do so, we will waive your application fee, provided you visit us before submitting an application.

Campus visits are held every Friday throughout the year (excluding university observed holidays) from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm CT.  You will get the opportunity to speak to an adviser from your program of interest, learn about the admission process from graduate school admission staff, and meet the Dean of the Graduate School.  A campus tour and lunch will be provided as well for you and up to two guests (three people total).  

Contact the graduate school at or (219) 464-5313 to reserve your spot for a campus visit.  Please inform us of your degree program of interest and the total number of guests that will be attending,

Visit Day

Please plan to arrive by 11:00 am and report to Valparaiso University's new Welcome Center.  The Welcome Center is located on the south side of campus and is easily accessible from the Highway 30 and Sturdy Road entrances.  Please view our campus map for directions.  You will want to park in Parking Lot 1 or Parking Lot 2 which are located just across the street from the Welcome Center.  You may park in any parking space marked "visitor". If you are on your way here and having trouble finding us, give us a call at the Graduate School and someone will be happy to help you. 

If you would like to visit campus on another day, please feel free to give us a call and we will set it up.
