Request Individual Campus Visit

The Office of Admissions schedules individual campus visits each week throughout the year.

During a private visit you can:
Meet your personal Admissions Representative, your Financial Assistance Counselor, faculty member, or coach. You can take a campus tour with one of our current C-N students and have lunch in the cafeteria. If you visit while classes are in session, we can also arrange for you to attend a class in the area of your academic interest.

For the best service, please request an individual campus visit at least 5-7 business days in advance. Individual appointments are scheduled Monday-Friday around the morning or afternoon campus tours (except holidays).

Group Campus Visit

We welcome many groups to campus throughout the year, from high schools to community-based educational organizations. Groups will experience a Carson-Newman student-led campus tour and an information session with an Admissions Representative.

Groups of high school students, along with chaperones, may request a group visit Monday-Friday throughout the year, based on space and staff availability. Holidays and other campus closure dates will not be available.

In order to provide a great visit experience, we limit group visits to students of high school age. Also, please request your group visit at least 2-3 weeks in advance of your visit date.

To reserve an on-campus visit for your group, please email us at with the following information.

  • Group name
  • Age range of attendees
  • Group contact information (email and phone number)
  • Number of attendees
