Arrival to Campus
If you are personalizing your visit, it will begin in Kretzmann Hall Administration Building, the first building on your right after entering campus from U.S. Hwy. 30. Visitor parking is in Lot 1 or 2. Proceed to the north lobby to check-in at the Graduate School reception desk.
Visitors receive an application fee waiver. Schedule today with a graduate admissions professional by calling 219.464.5313 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Out of an abundance of caution, given the circumstances, Spring Visit Day has been cancelled.
Our campus is still open and we are still accepting visitors, although we will be conducting most visits for the interim virtually using Skype or Zoom. We will plan on having a webinar in lieu of our Spring Visit Day to provide more information about our campus, graduate programs and financial aid. More information about that will be made available soon.
Visit Day is the best opportunity for prospective graduate students to learn more about graduate programs, financial aid opportunities for graduate students, and Valparaiso University Graduate School as a whole. The event is conducted by the Graduate School admissions staff, who will be joined by graduate faculty, students and other campus representatives. Visit Day is an excellent opportunity to:
- Learn more about the application process
- Meet Financial Aid staff
- Engage 1-on-1 with a program director
- Explore Valpo’s beautiful campus on an optional, 45-minute walking tour of campus
- See our iconic facilities such as the Christopher Center Library, Harre Union, Center for the Arts (VUCA), Chapel of the Resurrection, and anything connected to your program of interest.
