The Office of Admission is taking precautions to protect our students, faculty and staff, and prospective students from the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We have updated our visit programs to provide all prospective students opportunities to explore Drake remotely through weekday student-guided virtual tours, virtual individual admission counselor appointments, and the Virtual Sneak Peek at Drake program. A limited number of on-campus visits are available for senior and transfer students only, with adherence to health and safety guidelines. Date availability is listed.
Ongoing updates from the University are available on the COVID-19 Response website.
Each Student-Led Virtual Tour is guided by two Student Ambassadors. On your virtual tour, your student guides will show you around the virtual campus and tell you more about the student experience. You will have an opportunity to ask your tour guides questions face-to-face on-camera during your tour program.
