Undergraduate Day Visits

We are happy to arrange a campus visit of any length for you. If your time in Santa Fe is limited, set up a campus tour and a meeting with an admissions counselor. Please allow 90 minutes for the tour and counselor meeting.

Or stay longer and observe classes, have a meal in our dining hall, and meet with a faculty member and, if desired, financial aid staff. Our recommended day visit begins at 9 a.m. and concludes by 4 p.m. (If you’re here on a Monday or Thursday, you may extend your visit to observe evening seminar.)

Undergraduate Overnight Visits

Our overnight visit is structured so that you observe evening seminar, the cornerstone class of our distinctive program. Typically, an overnight begins at 4 p.m. on Monday or Thursday (the days seminars are held) and concludes by 4 p.m. the following day (Tuesday or Friday).

Your visit will start with a campus tour. Next, you’ll have dinner with a student host, then attend seminar. You’ll spend the night in one of our prospective student dorm rooms, which are outfitted with beds, linens, pillows, and towels. The next day you’ll observe additional classes as well as meet with an admissions counselor, a faculty member, and, if desired, financial aid staff.

We can modify the overnight schedule to accommodate your campus arrival and departure times. Please note that campus housing is only available for prospective students.

Travel Reimbursement for Accepted Students

Accepted undergraduate students may be reimbursed up to $500 for their documented travel expenses when visiting the Santa Fe campus.

To receive reimbursement, you must be accepted to the Santa Fe campus and travel to visit us for an overnight stay. Once here, hand your admissions counselor your St. John’s travel-related receipts and we’ll mail you a reimbursement check that covers up to $500 of your expenses. (Allow 14 business days for the check to be cut and mailed.) Reimbursable travel expenses include student airfare, parent lodging, car rental, fuel, and driving mileage. One reimbursement will be awarded per student. Contact visitsjc(at) with questions.

Graduate Visits

A campus visit provides a prospective student the opportunity to speak with the Associate Dean of Graduate Programs and to attend classes where the curriculum and the teaching style offered at St. John’s College are best demonstrated.

During the fall and spring terms, Monday and Thursday are the best days to visit for the Liberal Arts and the Eastern Classics programs. During the summer term, Tuesday and Thursday are the best days to visit. Contact santafe.giadmissions(at) to schedule your visit.
