Tips for a Successful College Visit

Schedule an appointment to visit campus.
Weekday visits and four weekend Open House programs are available at Alfred State. During the academic year you may take a guided campus tour and also meet with representatives from an academic major, Student Records and Financial Services, 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. Once you make an appointment to visit Alfred State, we will send you confirmation of your scheduled visit.

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.

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.
