When to visit

  • During the school year

    The best time to visit campus is when school is in session. Campus visits can be arranged for most weekdays throughout the academic year.

  • Preview Day

    You may also choose to visit during a Preview Day. On these special days, prospective students and their families participate in campus tours, short informational sessions, a delicious lunch, and interact with admissions counselors and faculty. It's a wonderful way to meet other students who are interested in Columbia College.

  • Departmental Showcase Day

    Departmental Showcase Day occurs twice a year and gives you a chance to get an in-depth look at a specific department of your interest.
