Free college tours for high school students?

Hey everyone! I know visiting colleges is tricky, but I've heard about some free college tour programs for high school students. Are there any programs that you'd recommend? Thanks!

Hey! You're right; visiting colleges has become trickier, but the good news is that many colleges and universities have adjusted by offering virtual tours and online open houses to prospective students. Virtual tours can often be accessed for free through a college's admissions website. In addition to these self-guided tours, some colleges offer live, interactive virtual tours with current students or admissions staff guiding the tour, giving you the opportunity to ask questions in real-time. Examples include YouVisit, CampusReel, and eCampus Tours.

Another option for free college tours, particularly for low-income and underrepresented students, is college access programs that organize visits to multiple college campuses. Programs like College Horizons and QuestBridge might provide information on virtual or in-person tours, depending on pandemic restrictions. Be sure to check the eligibility requirements for these programs, as they may have specific criteria for participation.

Lastly, don't forget to check out individual schools' admissions websites for information on their specific virtual tours or events they may be hosting. Many schools also offer webinars, live Q&A sessions, and other resources to ensure prospective students get an authentic experience of the campus and community. Happy exploring!
