    Drive-thru Campus Tour

    You’re welcome to take a self-guided drive-thru tour of our residential campus. Our 58-acre campus is open and easy to navigate by car. Following our main roadway through campus will give you a good sense of why our students love our campus. You’re encouraged to enter campus through the “North Entrance” where you can stop at the information kiosk to pick up admissions materials. An audio narration is available via Soundcloud. As a thank you for visiting, you can sign up to receive an undergraduate application fee waiver when you complete the drive-thru tour!

    Virtual Individual Student Appointments

    If you are a senior in high school or a potential transfer student, you can request a one-on-one virtual meeting with our admissions staff. These virtual meetings will take place over Zoom and can be used to answer all your questions, including if you’re an admissible candidate, prepare preliminary transfer credit evaluations, and offer academic advice. Due to limited in-office staffing and safety protocols as a result of COVID-19, virtual meetings with a counselor are preferred. In-person meetings are not recommended at this time.

    Note: 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.

    Fall 2020 Open House will be offered virtually. Check back soon for dates and more information.

    Group Tours
    Are you a teacher, guidance counselor or college program coordinator looking to arrange a group information session for your students?

We can offer flexible schedules during normal school hours Monday - Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. Please email Chris Dooley at grouptours@worcester.edu for more information.
    WSU Near You (College Fairs & on-site Transfer Info Sessions)

    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.

    Note: No high school visits or college fairs have been scheduled for the fall at this time. We are waiting for state guidelines and travel recommendations to ensure the safety of staff, students, and visitors. Check back in with us this fall to view any updates to our recruitment schedule.
