What To Expect

At your tour, you’ll get an inside look. You’ll have the chance to explore our campus and observe students and educators in action. This is an important part of the tour because you’ll be able to observe the school culture and see if it’s a good fit for you.

A tour allows you to meet with an admissions representative so you’ll get additional information about financing options, requirements, scheduling, programs, and more.

Where to find us

We have two locations. Your confirmation email and text will let you know the campus you will tour. Upon arrival, please check in at the front desk.

What To Bring

You’re not required to bring anything, but we do recommend bringing a couple of things:

  • Family or friend: Bringing a loved one with you offers support during this important decision-making process! There’s also a lot of information given at the tours and it’s never a bad idea to have someone else with you to lend an extra set of eyes and ears.
  • List of questions to ask: This one is important! We want you to get the most out of your tour and coming up with a list of questions will help.
  • Pen and paper: This will help you keep track of the answers to your questions! It’s a great resource to come back to later on when you are needing additional information to make your decision.
