Host a college tour

Thank you for your interest in hosting a college tour in conjunction with the national conference. Each institution is responsible for tour participant registration, capacity management and waitlist, as well as all tour details and costs, if applicable. Tours approved by NACAC will be posted on this website with relevant links to each institution's website. NACAC requests that tours are inclusive and open to all NACAC attendees, regardless of professional capacity. 

Tour options are as follows:

  • Individual Tour - Formal tour of one institution
  • Group Tour - Formal tours of multiple institutions. Institutions are generally clustered together and provide transportation between each institution.
  • Self Guided Individual Tour - Your institution will offer self-guided tours with no formal program. Self-guided tours are typically offered by institutions located within 30-minutes of the convention center and usually involve increased staffing in the admission office during noted times to allow for "drop in" attendees.
  • Private In-Person - Open only to an invited list of attendees. NACAC will not publicize these tours online, but NACAC will keep this information on file for attendees.
  • Self Guided Virtual Tour - Institution sends a link to a tour that participants can view on their own time.
  • Hosted Virtual Tour - Virtual tours that are scheduled at a specific time, hosted by members of the insitution and have interactive elements.
