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.

Due to program overlap, students should not register for both the Admitted Student Information Session and Tour and 'Dore for a Day on the same day. The Admitted Student Information Session and Tour offers students a more comprehensive visit experience. Students who enroll for both programs on the same day will be automatically unenrolled from 'Dore for a Day.

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.
