Visit the VCSU Campus!

VCSU students enjoy living and learning on campus.
We encourage you to come and meet us in person. 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 and meet the students, faculty, and staff; smell the smells; and see the sights.

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.

Signing up for a campus visit is easy. Just complete the Campus Visit Reservation Form. We will arrange everything for you and provide you with confirmation information that will direct you exactly where to go.

Visit here to learn more and complete the visit form, or feel free to call us at Enrollment Services - 701-845-7101.

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