Day visits are designed to give you a glimpse of the true college experience. You will have the opportunity to sit in on a class with a current American University student and have lunch in our dining hall. You may choose to take a tour or attend an information session.

We try to accommodate individual preferences but you may need to be flexible due to class and advisor availability.

If available, we have day visits for prospective freshmen and transfer students on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays throughout the fall and spring semesters. Please note that we do not offer day visits during the summer months, on any Wednesday, University holidays or special open house events on campus including Preview Days and Showcase AU events.

Fall day visits will begin on September 22 and end on December 2. 

No day visits will be offered the following days:

October 10 (Fall Break)

November 26-28 (Thanksgiving)
