Scripps College’s intellectually stimulating environment, the beauty of our campus, and the warmth of our community can’t be fully communicated through a website. We encourage you and your family to visit Scripps.

Students may register online for one or more of the following events:

Campus Visit

Campus Tour

9:00 am / 11:00 am / 1:00 pm
No 9:00 am tour during summer. Only 11:00 am tour during most breaks.

Our one-hour, student-guided campus tour provides a close-up view of the facilities and resources available to Scripps students, as well as insight into the academic and social life of the College.

Information Session

Led by a Scripps admission officer, the information session provides an opportunity for prospective students and families to learn more about Scripps and ask questions about application procedures, admission policies, and other topics. During the academic year, we typically offer information sessions on weekdays at 10:00 am and they last approximately 45 minutes. We offer an additional 2:00 pm information session in October and on select days in November.


While not required for admission, an interview can give you the opportunity to discuss your interests and goals, and to learn more about Scripps and the admission process. Interviews usually last 30-45 minutes and are conducted by trained Scripps seniors, admission officers, or Scripps alumnae.


Class Visits

High school seniors and transfer applicants may visit a class during the academic year from a pre-approved list; registration is only available in the Office of Admission upon arrival to campus. Monday-Thursday offers a much wider variety of classes than Friday.


Overnight Stay

An overnight stay is an excellent way to experience social and residential life at Scripps. Hosted by a current student, visitors spend the night in a residence hall and eat meals in our dining hall. They can also be combined with a campus tour, information session, interview, and/or class visit. Overnight visits are available to current high school seniors and transfers and are held Monday-Thursday.

Off Campus and Alumnae Interviews

Applicants who live farther than 150 miles from Scripps College and who are unable to travel to campus may be able to interview off campus with an admission officer or alumnae volunteer in their local area. We provide domestic and international interview options.

Group Visits

One-hour student-led tour followed by a 30-minute information session for groups of up to 20 female high school students. We ask that you arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your visit.
