Important Registration Details
Registration for 'Dore for a Day is required. When registering, please allow at least two weeks prior to your anticipated visit. Reservations will be confirmed on a space-available basis.
Please note, as part of the program you will attend your host’s afternoon class. If the host does not have an afternoon class then you may choose a class to visit as long as it is offered between 1 and 4 p.m. If you would like to visit a class other than your host's or that meets outside of 1 to 4 p.m., you must arrange this visit outside of the 'Dore for a Day program. Although we try our best to match you with a host in your area of academic interest, we cannot guarantee this due to host availability.
Please be advised that you should register only one person (the student) for 'Dore for a Day. The program is not designed to accommodate other family members. Parents and siblings may register for a daily information session and campus tour if sessions are available.
Please email or call (800.288.0432) the 'Dore for a Day team if your plans change and you can't attend, or if you're running late. Host students are only able to wait 10 minutes past the program start time due to class restraints.
