A campus visit is the perfect way to get a sense for our culture, surroundings, and the wealth of opportunities available at the Nicholas School. We host annual Prospective Student Open Houses and we are happy to arrange individual visits on other days throughout the year. We hope to see you soon!
Our on-campus (Durham, NC) Prospective Student Open House will be on Friday, October 11, 2019 in the afternoon. More details and a registration link to follow.
Our Washington, DC Prospective Student Open House will be on Thursday, November 14, 2019 in the evening. More details and a registration link to follow.
We are happy to arrange individual visits for those who cannot attend our Open House. You’ll have an opportunity to see our facilities, meet with admissions staff, visit classes, and meet faculty and current students (if school is in session).
When to Visit
Organized visits are offered on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays by appointment (maximum of 3 visitors per day). We recommend visiting when school is in session (consult the Academic Calendar) so you can have the chance to attend classes and meet faculty and students. However, admissions officers are available to meet with prospective students year-round if you can’t make it during the school year.
How to Schedule Your Visit
Please submit a Visitation Request Form at least 10 business days prior to when you would like to visit. For opportunities to meet admissions staff on the road, click here to view the travel/recruitment schedule.
