A prospective student and family may meet with the Director of Student & Academic Affairs, Jill Heitzmann, between 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday (based on appointment availability). You may also contact Jill at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions about the School of Communication.
The American University Office of Admissions also offers a number of opportunities for you to visit campus (click each link for more information):
Information Sessions and Campus Tours are available on a regular basis by the Office of Admissions at AU. Contact the Office of Admissions at email@example.com or 202-885-6000 to schedule your visit.
Preview Days are AU's premier open house events for prospective students and families. During a Summer Preview Day you and your family will meet current AU students and faculty, tour the campus with a student ambassador, learn about academic programs, the career center, study abroad, campus life, scholarships, financial aid and more.
Day Visits are designed to give you a glimpse of the true college experience. A Day Visit is one that is individually set up for you, based on your interests and needs. You will have the opportunity to sit in on a class with a current AU student and have lunch in our dining hall. You may choose to take a tour and attend an information session. The Office of Admissions does try to accommodate individual preferences, though you may need to be flexible due to class availability.
