Organization and High School Visits
office of undergraduate admission
Thank you for your interest in bringing your students to Boston College. We welcome groups of 10 or more visitors from high schools and college access/readiness organizations. Group visits are available three days a week by appointment only: on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays during the academic year and summer. Requests should be made at least two weeks in advance.
Due to our large visitor volume, we only accommodate groups consisting of high school sophomores, juniors and/or seniors. This is also due to our desire not to contribute to the college admission frenzy, which can occur when introducing students to the college admission process at such an early age. It is our belief that the best way to prepare elementary and middle-school students for college is to assist them in building a solid academic foundation.
Group Visit Experience
We provide information sessions and campus tours led by a current student, each lasting an hour. Group appointments are folded into our regular scheduled programming; however, some exceptions are made based on size or special request and will be given a private information session.
If there isn’t an appointment that fits your group’s availability, we welcome groups to do a self-guided walking tour of campus on a time and day that best fits your schedule.
We know that visiting multiple colleges all day builds an appetite. We welcome groups to eat in our dining halls; however, we do not provide meal vouchers or subsidized lunch for visitors. Groups are welcome to purchase meals out of pocket (cash, credit, and debit accepted). If you are interested in eating on our campus, please indicate this on your visit request form and dining services details will be provided to you in your visit confirmation e-mail.
