Beeson offers in-person campus visits Tuesdays through Fridays during the fall and spring semesters. Visits include a campus tour and meeting with an admission staff member. Upon registering to visit, someone from the Office of Admission will reach out via email with a specific itinerary and instructions for the day. We will waive the $35 application registration fee for everyone who registers and attends!

Students may also register for a Preview Day (spring and fall semesters). Preview Days are a great way to learn about all Beeson Divinity School offers, and we will waive the $35 application registration fee for everyone who attends.
