You are here: Day Visits

See what it's like to be a student at American University.

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.

Who can participate in a day visit?

Day Visits are open to high school juniors and seniors, as well as prospective transfer students. Please note, during the month of April, only admitted high school seniors will be able to participate in a day visit. During that month, Day Visits are not available for denied high school seniors, high school juniors, or transfer students.
