Visit the VCSU Campus!

Visiting campus is a great opportunity for you and your parents to meet with an academic adviser, visit with Enrollment Services staff, and take a tour of campus including the residence halls. One of the best ways for you to get a sense of whether a campus is right for you is to visit in person. During your visit you will meet current students, faculty, and staff; see the sights and find out what VCSU is all about.

We custom design your visit to meet your specific interests and needs. You can even sit in on a class if you'd like. Plus, just for visiting, we'll give you a limited edition VCSU t-shirt.

Click here to learn more and complete the visit form, or feel free to call us at Enrollment Services - 701-845-7101. We will arrange everything for you and provide you with confirmation information that will direct you exactly where to go.

Campus visits are available Monday-Friday from 8:00am-3:00pm and generally last two hours.

New Visitor Parking
We've got a spot just for you! Please use our new designated Viking Visitor parking during your campus visit.
