You are here: American University Admissions Experience AU Group Visits

Join us on campus for a group visit!

We are pleased to welcome groups of 15-80 high-school-aged students and chaperones for a specialized 60-minute in-person campus visit experience. We regret that we do not have the resources to accommodate groups of elementary or middle school students. 

Our spring group visit opportunities have concluded for this semester. We invite you to explore our summer group visit offerings. We hope to see you on campus soon!

Requesting a Group Visit

To request a group visit, please submit the Group Visit Request form. We ask that you give us at least two weeks notice in arranging your visit. We will not consider requests made less than two weeks in advance of the requested date.

All fields of the group visit request form must be completed. Incomplete forms will not be considered. 

Participating in a Group Visit

What You Can Expect From Us: 

  • A 60-minute walking tour of campus that will introduce you to the AU community.
  • Check-in will be contactless. All materials are pre-packaged and set out in advance for you.

What We Expect From You:

  • We ask that all visitors register for a visit at least 24-hours in advance.
  • If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, regardless of vaccination status, please reschedule your visit: fever of 100.4 or above, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, muscle aches, new loss of taste or smell.

Student Conduct

Visiting groups will be accompanied by adult chaperones/teachers/sponsors at all times. We require one chaperone for every 15 students. The ultimate responsibility for each group rests with these designated adults, not American University. Visiting students are expected to conduct themselves as respectful visitors to the campus and not demonstrate disruptive behavior during any aspect of their campus visit. Should such behavior occur, the American University admissions staff and/or tour guides have the right to terminate the campus visit.
