We offer tours during our academic year, excluding holidays and final exams. In addition to scheduling a tour, guests have the option to register for a prospective student session with the school or college of their major interest before or after the tour. These are small group sessions, led by an academic advisor, that include a discussion of the school/college majors and admissions criteria.

Prospective student sessions are recommended for those students who have decided on their major course of study due to the nature of the information provided. The role of the academic advisor is to explain and discuss academic requirements and help students progress through the major to graduation. As a prospective student, your session provides you an opportunity to learn specifics of your desired major and the school or college that offers the program. Transfer students wishing to speak with an advisor should call (414) 229-2222 for more specific information.
