    For information about scheduling a group tour, please refer to our Group Tours tab.

    Individual Student Appointments

    If you are a senior in high school or a potential transfer student, you can request a one-on-one meeting with our admissions staff. If you have questions that can’t be answered via email or over the phone, we’re more than happy to talk with you in person. If you bring your transcripts, we can determine if you’re an admissible candidate, prepare preliminary transfer credit evaluations, and offer academic advice.

    *Admissions counselors will be traveling frequently during the months of September and October so appointments will be offered on a limited basis. Please contact your counselor directly to determine their availability. 

    Fall Open Houses

    Open house is a perfect opportunity to meet with our faculty, staff, and current students. You also will have the chance to discuss the admissions process, financial aid, residence life, student services, campus activities, and academics. Each academic department will be represented so that you can explore all our majors. Full campus tours are included as part of every open house event.

    Fall 2017
    We have reached capacity for fall 2017 group tours. We will begin reviewing requests for spring semester in January 2018. 

    General group tour guidelines:

    • Group tours will be offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.
    • An Admissions Information Session is available in conjunction with the campus tour dependent upon counselor availability. Tours are not available on weekends or on holidays when WSU is closed.
    • In order to plan the best visit possible and to secure a student tour guide, we ask that you submit your request at least 3 weeks in advance.
    • We can accommodate groups of up to 50 students. Tours are geared toward high school students.
    • Although we are not able to provide complementary lunch to all of our visitors, groups are welcome to have lunch on their own in our brand new dining facility in Sheehan Hall. Once your group tour has been confirmed, we will send you information on how to make lunch arrangements.

    If you have any questions, please contact Christopher Dooley at grouptours@worcester.edu or 508-929-8040.

    WSU Near You
    If you haven’t had a chance to visit our campus, our undergraduate admissions representatives schedule visits to high schools, attend many college fairs, and hold transfer-student information sessions at community colleges around Massachusetts and neighboring states throughout the year. We can give you an overview of WSU and answer any questions you may have about our academic programs, student life, and residence halls. Please note that the travel schedule is updated regularly as visits and fairs are scheduled. Check out when we will be in your area.
