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 an annual Prospective Student Open House 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 was held on Friday, October 12, 2018.
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
Visits are offered Monday through Friday by appointment. 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 two weeks 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.
