Current COVID-19 Expectations

We are excited to offer in-person campus visits but it is incredibly important to us that we do so safely. Below are the precautions we are taking specific to campus tours to ensure the health and safety of our staff and visitors in response to COVID-19:

  • Please do not attend your visit if you or anyone in your household is ill.
  • As of August 23, 2021, all attendees, tour guides, and staff members are required to wear masks while indoors during the campus visit (regardless of vaccination status). If you do not have a mask, we will provide one for you. If these mask requirements change, we will communicate with you prior to your visit.
  • Masks are not expected to be worn outdoors.
