Admissions / Visit

The best way to decide if Meredith is right for you is to come for a visit. Spend a night in a residence hall or sit in on a class. Talk with a faculty member or a current student in your field of interest. Meet with your admissions counselor and financial aid team. Find out how Meredith can help you become even stronger.

How to Register

To sign up for a visit, register online, call 1-800-MEREDITH or (919) 760-8581, or email

Note: 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.

Visit Options

There are two ways to visit Meredith’s campus: you can schedule an individual appointment or attend one of our Open House days.

Individual Appointments

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

  • Meet with a faculty member and attend a class in your academic area of interest*
  • Meet with a coach if you are an athlete
  • Talk with a current student
  • Meet with an admissions counselor
  • Take a guided tour of campus


Monday-Friday Visits
Morning visits: 9 a.m. - 12 p.m.
Afternoon visits: 1 p.m - 4 p.m.

     ** Visits scheduled during the summer, between May 1 and September 7, last approximately two hours.  

Saturday Visits (offered during the Fall and Spring term)
10 a.m. - 12 p.m.

Please check the registration calendar for availability.

*Note: faculty and class visits are available when classes are in session during regular Fall and Spring terms only.


Open Houses

Some students prefer to visit as part of a larger group through one of our open house days. If you choose this option, you’ll be able to:

  • Learn about academic programs in your area of interest
  • Tour campus with a current student
  • Learn about admissions, scholarships and financial aid
  • Ask current students about what it's like to be a student at Meredith
