    Schedule Notice

    Campus tours and information sessions are suspended on the weekends, federal holidays, and during the University closings.

    • Fall semester tours are scheduled beginning the week after Labor Day (September through November).
    • Spring semester tours are scheduled middle of January through April.
    • Summer semester tours are scheduled early June through late July.


    The Office of Recruitment and Admission welcomes high schools, community colleges, and other special groups of no more than 100 students to schedule a visit to campus. We require groups to provide one (1) chaperone per twenty-five (25) students to ensure effective management of the group.

    During your visit, your group will be led on a walking tour around campus by one of our Student Ambassadors. At this time, you will be provided with information on UDC’s legacy and tradition, financial aid, housing, and extra-curricular activities. The tour will last for approximately 1 hour.


    We will try our best to accommodate your preferred visit date, but a minimum of two weeks’ notice is typically needed to plan a visit for your group.

    Availability for daily campus visits and tours are limited and our calendar fills up quickly. Our peak season occurs during the spring semester (January-April); thus, it is best to schedule a visit as far in advance as possible. All other visit inquiries may be sent to
