    Visitors with appointments to meet with Admission or participate in a campus tour must also present proof of a negative PCR test result no older than seven days before the visit date. 

    Visitors who do not meet these requirements will not be allowed to stay in the building.

Only those with appointments will be able to tour campus or meet with admission staff. Visitors without appointments may interact with Welcome Center staff briefly (up to ten minutes) within the Welcome Center lobby.
