Tips for a Successful College Visit

Contact the Admissions Office to schedule an appointment.
During the academic year at Alfred State you may take a guided campus tour and also meet with representatives from an academic department, Student Records and Financial Services, the Student Success Center, Athletics, and Admissions, as appropriate. Campus tours, financial aid appointments, and admissions interviews are also available when school is not in session.

Bring a copy of your high school transcript if meeting with an Admissions counselor, and financial information, i.e., latest tax returns, if meeting with a representative from Student Records and Financial Services.

When scheduling your appointment, request travel directions, a campus map, and any special interest information you would like.
Once you make an appointment to visit Alfred State, we will send you confirmation of your scheduled visit along with a website link for directions, a campus map, and overnight accommodation information.

Read the pertinent information on the college website or in the printed materials prior to your visit.

Make a list of questions you would like to ask. (See Questions to Ask When Selecting a College.)
At Alfred State your campus tour usually is given by a current student so be sure to take advantage of this person’s knowledge. You may want to ask what attracted your tour guide to the school, about extracurricular activities, the residence halls, etc.
