Admissions / Visit

Visit Options

The best way to decide if Meredith is right for you is to come for a campus visit. Sit in on a class. Talk with a faculty member or a current student in your field of interest. Meet with your admissions counselor to learn about the application and admission process and scholarship opportunities. Find out how Meredith can help you become even stronger.

There are two ways to visit Meredith’s campus: schedule an individual campus visit or attend one of our open houses.

Campus Visits


During an individual campus visit, you’ll get an in-depth sense of what it’s like to study at Meredith. You’ll find out what’s different about our educational experience. And you’ll gain a sense of how you might “fit” in at Meredith. You and your family will have an opportunity to:

  • Meet with a faculty member or attend a class in your area of academic interest**
  • Learn about the application & scholarship process
  • Talk with a current student
  • Meet with a coach if you are an athlete
  • Take a guided tour of campus

Monday - Friday Visits
Morning visits begin at 9 am and end at approximately 12 pm.*
Afternoon visits begin at 1 pm and end at approximately 4 pm.*

   Class/faculty visits are not available March 6 - 9 due to Spring Break or April 11 due to Celebrating Student Achievement Day.

   May 2 is the last day of the spring semester for class/faculty visits.

Saturday Visits (offered during the Fall and Spring term)
Saturday visits begin at 10 am and end at 12 pm.

When scheduling an individual appointment, please have a tentative date and time in mind, and contact us at least one week in advance of your visit date.
