What to Expect: Campus Tour Experience

Information Session

Attend a 45-minute information session and learn about the application process, life on Rocky Top, the campus community, and more. An admissions staff member will be available before and after each campus tour to answer your questions.

Campus Tour

Continue with a 90-minute walking tour. You will get a great overview of campus, academics, and student life—all presented from a student’s perspective.

Academic Information Session (Optional)

These information sessions provide additional details about specific academic colleges. If you’re planning a campus visit and would like to attend an academic session, we recommend reviewing the academic information session schedule before selecting your campus visit day.

Academic Appointment (Optional)

Once you register for your campus tour, you can request an additional academic appointment and learn more about specific majors or colleges you’re interested in. Please note, these custom appointments are only available on weekdays and require a minimum of two weeks’ notice.
