Visiting Houghton

You are ready to write the next chapter in your story—ready to boldly step into your future...and we can’t wait to meet you!

Whether you come for an individual visit, a Highlander Preview Day, music audition, or another type of visit, experience a community where your passions and talents are celebrated and encouraged.

Highlander Preview Days

Tour campus, sit in on a class, interact with current students, engage with faculty, and catch a glimpse of what life at Houghton is like.

Individual Visits

Ideal if you prefer one-on-one interaction and have specific requests for what to do while on campus.

Special Visits

Throughout the academic year, we offer special visit days centered around certain campus events or academic areas. These special days are a great opportunity to more deeply experience Houghton College.


Music Auditions

All applicants to the School of Music are required to prepare and present an entrance audition. These auditions are designed to give studio faculty opportunity to meet each applicant and to assess strengths and potential for success in collegiate music studies. 

The completed music application and two teacher recommendation forms must be submitted prior to scheduling an audition. We strongly recommend, for fullest consideration regarding admission & scholarship, that auditions be completed on or before March 4.
