How would you like to visit
Valparaiso University?

Personal Visit

International students, your personal visit includes a walking tour of campus, meeting with your admission counselor, and a faculty appointment. Because our counselor’s calendar fills up quickly, please set up your visit at least two weeks in advance. Copies of your transcripts would be helpful for us to have before your visit so we have time to review them.

Please note that faculty appointments are not available during our breaks and are unlikely during the Summer.

Email: or call 001-219-464-5011.
