GET TO KNOW CAMPUS

We are excited to offer in-person visits and virtual visit opportunities  (which include a virtual tour and one-one-one counselor meeting), academic sessions, and virtual events. We know experiencing campus, whether it’s in-person or virtually, is one of the most important things you can do in your college search and look forward to meeting you soon.

 

Immediately after entering campus, I could feel the close-knit community embodied through the surrounding greenery and towering evergreens scattered throughout the campus... PLU's campus feels like home.

In-person visits require an RSVP at least 2 days in advance and are limited to 1 student and up to 3 guests from the same household per tour time. We cannot accommodate walk-in requests. A campus visit automatically includes:

  • A campus tour lead by a current student
  • A one-on-one meeting with an Admission Counselor

While on campus we enforce strict mask-wearing, proper physical distancing, and the buildings you enter are limited (for example, you will not see inside a residence hall). If a tour time is not available on a day you are in our area, you are always welcome to walk campus on your own using our self-guided tour

Please note all official transcript evaluations are completed during the admission application process and cannot be done during a campus visit.  Email your transfer admission counselor for more questions about transferable classes and unofficial transcript reviews.

We also offer an interactive transfer guide any student may use to see what classes have transferred to PLU in the past from various colleges.
