Ever had an article of clothing custom-made, just for you? (Those itchy, lumpy wool socks your great-aunt knitted one Christmas don't count.) Well, individual visits to Whitworth are kind of like that – we'll create a schedule of activities just for you, based on your needs and interests. To register for your visit, please complete the Individual Visit Request Form linked below.
Your individual visit may include...
Campus Tour: Your campus tour will be led by a current student and will be about 90 minutes long. This is a walking tour, so please wear comfortable shoes and dress appropriately for the weather.
Admissions Presentation: An admissions staff member will fill you in on Whitworth's admissions process and scholarship opportunities, and provide info about the university.
Please note: To maximize our staffing resources, it's likely that your campus tour and admissions presentation will take place with other visiting prospective students and their families.
Class Visit: Interested in physics? Art? Economics? Sit in on an actual class taught by a professor who's as enthused about her students as she is about the subject matter. When you schedule an individual visit online, simply list your top three academic interests, and we'll find a class that best fits your interests and visit schedule. (Due to limited space, parents are unable to visit classes.)
A Note for Parents
- We invite parents to join their student for the campus tour, admissions presentation, and one-on-one appointment with an admissions counselor. Due to limited space in classrooms, parents are unable to visit classes.
- Parents are invited to enjoy meals in the dining hall, located in the Hixson Union Building, for approximately $8.50 per meal per person (cash is preferred); à la carte meal options are available in the the HUB café and Mind & Hearth Coffee House (cash, credit and debit cards are accepted).
- Unfortunately, we're unable to accommodate parents overnight on campus. Please see our Local Accommodations list for recommended hotels close to campus. Most of the listed hotels offer a reduced rate – just let them know you're visiting Whitworth.
A Few Final Items
- Due to staff commitments, we're unable to accommodate individual visits on dates when Snapshot or "Why Whitworth?" Days are scheduled. Check our Visit Calendar for available dates.
- If you'd prefer to visit Whitworth with other prospective students and their families and experience campus in a group format, we recommend that you take part in our Snapshot or Why Whitworth Days visit options.
