Campus Visit


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 offer a variety of ways for you to learn more about Scripps, from on-campus tours to interviews in your area. Discover more and connect with us, below.

A Day Visit to Scripps Can Include:

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.

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, high school seniors and transfer students may attend classes from a pre-approved list. NOTE: Monday – Thursday offers a much wider array of classes than Friday. Please access our Class Visits FAQ to learn more.

Conducted by an admission officer or a trained senior interviewer, interviews are a great way to learn more about Scripps and help Scripps learn more about you.

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. Overnight visits are available to current high school seniors and transfers. Please note, Scripps limits one overnight per term. If you would like to schedule an overnight stay, please click HERE.
