Visitor Registration Form

We look forward to welcoming you to our campus for a visit! As mentioned on the website, Houghton offers three distinct visit experiences. Please keep this information in mind as you determine which visit day will best suit your particular needs and interests.

Encounter Days

Think "open house." These days are designed to provide you with an overall first-introduction to Houghton College. If you are thinking about visiting for the first time, an Encounter Day is an excellent choice. The day will begin with registration from 9:00 a.m. to 9:30  a.m. and conclude by 4:00 p.m. The day's activities will include an academic information fair, attending chapel, sitting in on a sample class, an admission information session over lunch, a campus tour and a session that highlights Houghton's emphasis on career preparation.

Opportunity Days

If you're particularly interested in learning about a specific department or major in-depth, visiting on an Opportunity Day is the way to go. These days allow students and parents the opportunity to participate in visit activities through the lens of some of our departments and majors such as pre-health, music, art, etc.. More information about the Music Opportunities Day can be found here.

Individual Visits

An Individual Visit is the ideal choice for students and parents who prefer one-on-one interaction and who have specific requests as to what they would (and would not) like to do during their time on campus. To use this form, your arrival day must be at least one week from today's date.  If you wish to schedule before this, please call the Visit Office at 800.777.2556 to check on availability.  Thank you!
