Admissions Events

We want you to feel at home in Central Arkansas!  The Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services hosts a number of opportunities for you to visit our beautiful campus and learn how we may serve you.

Please know we are monitoring COVID-19 and its standing in our community so we may adjust as needed.  To ensure the health and safety of our guests and campus community members, preview day and/or tours may convert to a virtual format or require that guests wear masks on campus.  If we move to a virtual format or change our health and safety protocols, we will inform registered participants via email and publish updates on this webpage.

Campus Tours

Visit our beautiful campus!  Tours are available Monday – Friday at 10 am and 1 pm.  You may search for specific availability and register for campus tours online. In the meantime, check out our virtual tour online!

We encourage you to pre-register for campus tours to ensure we don’t exceed maximum capacity.

If you’re interested in bringing a group from a school or organization, we’re happy to schedule a separate tour for you.  We offer group tours Monday – Friday at 11 am.  Please fill out a Group Campus Tour Form or email our Assistant Director of Campus Visits, Jessie Van Es at svanes@uca.edu.
