Group Visit Policies
- Group visits at PLU include an admission presentation led by a PLU admission counselor and a campus tour. Please allow one hour for each component. Groups also have the option of dining on campus, which is typically about 30-45 minutes.
- To provide the best service to all visitors, the Office of Admission is able to accommodate one middle school and/or two high school groups each week during the academic school year.
- Group visits are not scheduled during student breaks (i.e. Spring and Christmas break), pre-finals week, finals week, and the day prior to or the day of Office of Admission campus programs. Group visits during the summer are welcome.
- Visits must take place during one of the regularly scheduled tour times: 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m. or 2:30 p.m.
- Please contact us at least two (2) weeks prior to your visit. We will do our best to accommodate your date request; however, due to campus events and staffing limitations, we may need to consider alternate dates.
- Our tours and presentations are designed to give you the best campus experience at PLU - in order to ensure that you have the best campus experience, we ask that you limit your tour group size to no more than 45 participants. Any Group Visit request with more than 45 participants will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Each group must provide one chaperon for every 10 students. Chaperons must be 20 years of age or older.
- If requesting lunch on campus, groups can choose to dine in the University Commons or bring sack lunches. Lunch in the Commons is approximately $8-10 per person depending on what students choose to eat, as items in the Commons are individually priced. The Office of Admission may subsidize the cost of lunch or offer other options for groups smaller than 10 or groups on free/reduced lunch. Each situation is handled case-by-case, so please contact the Group Visit Coordinator for more information.
- We welcome your organization to our campus! Chaperons are expected to ensure the group shows respect to the university and its students, faculty, and staff.
