Visit SMU

Picture yourself here

Let's face it, even the most vivid description can't give you a real, live experience. No matter how detailed the description of our amazing campus, our welcoming and friendly atmosphere, our outstanding academics and the abundance of opportunities we offer for you to explore activities, career options and even the world itself, you simply have to see it all for yourself to know if it's right for you.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission looks forward to welcoming future Mustangs to campus with a variety of visit options. You can select a daily visit or prospective student program through one of the links below. If you are not a prospective student but are looking to visit the SMU campus, we invite you to please click here for more options.

Daily Visit Options

DAILY VISITS are offered Monday through Friday and include an admission information session, a campus tour, and an information session in your academic college. We can also help you personalize your day and arrange for you to sit in on a class, meet with a professor and eat lunch with current students during the school year.

WEEKEND VISITS offer a campus and residence hall tour and an information session on selected Saturdays during the spring and fall.

Group Visits 

GROUP VISITS are offered for groups of 15 - 40 students in 9th through 12th grades on most Mondays - Fridays. You can choose an admission information session, a campus tour, or both. 

Please note, in the case of inclement weather where SMU cancels classes, admission programs and tours will be cancelled as well. Campus closures will be announced on SMU’s homepage,
