    Virtual Tours

    The best way to learn about Worcester State University is to walk around our beautiful campus and talk with members of our vibrant community—students, professors, and admissions staff alike. However, during our campus closure, we want to bring that tour to you. We look forward to seeing you on campus as soon as possible. Stay safe and healthy!

    Note: If you are a prospective transfer student, check out our virtual transfer information session schedule.

    Drive-thru Campus Tour

    You’re welcome to take a drive-thru tour of our residential campus on your own. Although buildings remain closed, 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”.

    Note: A driving tour pamphlet and map will also be available at the North Entrance.

    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.

    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. 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.

    Check back in the summer for Fall 2020 Open House dates.

    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.
