Individual Campus Visit

The best way to discover Austin College is to visit our campus for yourself. During a campus visit, you may meet students and faculty, tour the campus, and eat in the dining hall. Attend an available class* and ask questions of the admission professionals who are on hand to help you learn more about campus. (Three business days minimum advance notice is requested.)

High school seniors may arrange an overnight stay* Sunday through Thursday. Overnight stays are not scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights. (Ten business days advance notice is requested.)

To schedule an individual campus visit or an overnight stay*, you may REGISTER ONLINE, call 1.800.KANGAROO (526.4276), or email admission@austincollege.edu!
