Plan Your Visit
Fall Visit Options
There are a variety of ways to visit and experience Notre Dame. We invite you to review the options below and schedule a visit that best meets your needs:
Prospective middle school and high school students should plan to spend a day with us as an "ND VIP"—our personalized daily visit experience. Ideally, you should submit your Application for Admission before scheduling your ND VIP visit.
As an ND VIP, you will:
"Shadow" a student throughout her day
Visit classes and meet our faculty
Share lunch with your student guide and/or other current students
Discover opportunities to participate in athletic, extracurricular, and co-curricular activities
Learn firsthand what sisterhood at Notre Dame is all about
Representatives from our Admissions staff will guide students through the day and be here to answer any questions about Notre Dame or their time with us.
The parent visit is an integral element of the admissions process and we encourage all parents to visit early in the process. Join us on the same day as your child, or visit separately at a more convenient time for you.
Parents should plan to spend about an hour with us to tour campus, meet students and staff, and spend time with an admissions representative. Appointments with additional staff and/or administrators are available upon request and as schedules allow.
