Your Opportunity to Explore College

Iowa Private College Week is July 31 - August 4, 2017. Now's the time to save the date and get registered!

During Iowa Private College Week, Iowa’s 25 private colleges and universities invite students and families to explore our campuses, visit with professors, meet coaches, chat with current students, and learn all about academic and social opportunities Iowa's private colleges offer.

Why Should You Attend?

Campus visits are important!! Remember, this college research time is all about finding your fit. The best way to learn if a college fits you is to get on the campus and experience it for yourself.

Iowa's 25 private college campuses synchronize schedules so you can tour at least two campuses a day during Iowa Private College Week.

When you register, students will be entered into great drawings for prizes like Amazon Gift Cards, a GoPro Hero camera, Ipad Minis and more.

Register Today!

Can’t attend? No sweat. You can register to visit any of these colleges at any time.

  1. When you register, simply select, “I would like to visit, but can't make it during Iowa Private College Week” on the registration form.
  2.  Choose the colleges you would like to visit and a representative from the college’s admissions team will reach out to you to find a convenient time to schedule a personalize visit.

It’s as easy as that! (You’ll still be entered into our drawings, too!)

Tour Times

Tours are scheduled twice each day at each campus: 9 a.m. for the first session and 1:30 p.m. for the second session. We do this so that families can optimize their time and complete up to two campus visits per day or a total of 10 campus visits during the week.

Please note that some of our colleges have altered tour times during Iowa Private College Week, so be sure to review, coordinate your visit times and print your registration schedule.
