If you are looking for a great first experience on campus, consider an admission/financial aid information session and campus tour.

The group information session is designed for current high school students and their families to learn the John Carroll story. In addition to hearing about our mission, values, and philosophy of education that makes us unique, we will also provide helpful information on the admission process, scholarships, and financial aid.

  • Information sessions are approximately one hour in length and are generally offered Monday through Friday at 10 a.m. and on Fridays at 2 p.m. They are also offered select Saturdays throughout the academic year at noon. Presentation offerings during the summer months may vary; check the online calendar for availability.

A campus tour, led by a current John Carroll undergraduate student, offers any prospective student and his or her family the opportunity to see the facilities of our beautiful suburban campus. Wear your walking shoes! Our tour guides also enjoy sharing their John Carroll story, so come ready to ask questions about the student experience.

  • Group tours are generally available Monday through Friday at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 3 p.m., and select Saturdays throughout the academic year at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. This easily allows visitors the convenience of taking a campus tour before or after one of our information sessions. However, tour guides are also available for more personalized tours if you cannot make any of these set times.
