Undergraduate Campus Visit

We invite you to take a closer look at Framingham State University by signing up for a walking tour of the campus! Tours are conducted by our Student Admissions Representatives. You will see what our campus offers including visits to classrooms, residence halls, and the Athletic Center. During peak times our visit options fill quickly.

We feel so strongly about the importance of a campus visit, that we'll reward your interest in FSU by waiving your undergraduate application fee. All you need to do is visit campus AND apply before the preferred application deadline and we'll waive your fee.

Campus tours last approximately 90-minutes and are conducted by our Student Admissions Representatives. Tours depart from the Undergraduate Admissions Welcome Center and are offered most weekdays during the academic year, and select weekdays in the summer. Check our calendar for availability.

Information Sessions provide an overview of academic programs, campus life, and admissions criteria. Sessions include a 30-minute presentation by one of our Admissions Counselors followed by an 90-minute campus tour led by one of our Student Admissions Representatives. Sessions are offered most weekdays and select Saturdays. We encourage high school seniors to attend a session in the fall and juniors to attend a session in the spring or summer. Check our calendar for availability.

The Explore FSU program offers the opportunity for secondary school counselors, teachers, and their college-bound students to visit campus and participate on a tour and/or information session. Discounted meal tickets are available for visiting groups during the academic year for an on-campus dining experience at the Dining Commons in the McCarthy Center.

Group visits are by request only. In order for us to accommodate your visit, we need a minimum of 2 weeks advance notice. To schedule a group visit, please complete the Group Visit Request Form.
