School Year Visits (August 26–April 26)
During the school year, we welcome day visits Monday–Saturday. On Monday, Wednesday, and Friday we offer more class visit options and chapel services. Information regarding available weekday visit experiences is available below. After seeing what we have to offer, please fill out our visit request form. We look forward to meeting you!
You will receive all communication regarding your visit at the email address you provide on the visit request form. If you haven’t received your confirmation email within three business days of your request, please contact the campus visit coordinator to verify that we have received your request and have all of the correct contact information for you.
On any weekday, you may meet with an admissions counselor, take a tour of campus with a student tour guide, meet with the financial aid and records offices, go to classes and meet with professors and coaches. When you submit your visit form or call to schedule a visit, you will receive a confirmation email with directions and a brief summary of your visit. When you arrive for your visit you will receive a detailed itinerary. The shortest available visit is 90 minutes and includes a tour of campus and a meeting with an Admissions officer. We encourage students to take advantage of as many of the following visit experiences as their schedule allows.

During this meeting, your admissions counselor will get to know you, answer questions and give a brief introduction to Covenant College by explaining Covenant's motto and mission as a Christ-centered, liberal-arts college.
Take a Campus Tour (60 minutes)
We allow an hour for this walking tour of campus, given by a current student. The tour will highlight the major buildings on campus and explain some of the College’s history. Your guide will also share more about life at Covenant and discuss the application process, academics, and campus community.
Eat in the Great Hall (60 minutes)

Attend a Class (50–75 minutes per class)
Experiencing classes at Covenant College is a crucial part of the college search process. We offer all students the opportunity to sit in on classes. Please notify the campus visit coordinator if you would like to visit a class in a specific subject. Classes are available on all weekdays, although significantly more classes are available for observation on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Please be sure to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel, any homework you you need to complete, and overnight toiletries for your stay.
