Campus Visit

Scheduling a Campus Visit

Choosing a college is an important and tough decision. That is why The Office of Undergraduate Admissions provides prospective students and families opportunities to tour our campus and experience life at Auburn first-hand!

What is included on a campus tour?

The campus tour begins with a thirty-minute information session followed by a walking tour. The information session includes academic highlights of Auburn University, as well as the admissions process, scholarships and the Auburn community. The 75-minute walking tour, led by a Student Recruiter, will focus on Auburn's history, tradition and student life.

If you are flying into the Atlanta Airport, there will be a time change from Eastern Time to Central Time when driving across the Georgia-Alabama state line.
