Admissions Presentations and Campus Tours

The Office of Admissions enthusiastically welcomes prospective students and their families to visit our campus in West Hartford, Connecticut for our in-person Admissions Presentations and Campus Tours. You’ll have the opportunity to meet with a member of our team to learn about what makes USJ such a special place and discuss the admissions and financial aid process, as well as experience our campus from the viewpoint of a current USJ student and Admissions Ambassador!

These events are offered Monday-Friday at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m., with a Friday morning session at 9 a.m. (with certain exceptions) and on select Saturdays at 10 a.m. We also offer additional tour times during traditional public school breaks. Please visit our campus visit registration page to select a date to register.

As a token of our appreciation for visiting, eligible students will also receive the one-time, $1,000 Campus Visit Scholarship, which will be applied toward your first year at USJ if you enroll as a full-time undergraduate student.

Virtual Conversations with a Counselor

These sessions are especially designed for students who are unable to make it to campus due to distance limitations. You will have the opportunity to meet with an admissions counselor virtually to ask any questions about the admission process. We currently offer these sessions Monday through Friday at 2 p.m. ET with the exception of Tuesdays at 9 a.m. ET. Please select a date to register on our campus visit registration page.
