  • Community Colleges
  • Not-For-Profit Organizations focused on Access or Exposure to College

Other groups: Middle schools, grade schools, and other qualifying organizations may request approval to visit and park on campus, and can be provided with resources to enjoy a self-guided visit with age appropriate sites, resources, and activities, but we are sorry to say that we are no longer providing staffing for guided tours for these age levels.
