Individual Campus Visits

Vanderbilt Divinity School welcomes in-person and virtual campus visits during the summer between May 16th and August 12th.

Sign up for a day that works with your schedule, and the staff of the Office of Admissions, Vocation, and Stewardship will put together a visit. 

Due to reduced academic schedules during the summer, your visits will include a campus tour and an interview with the Assistant Dean of Admissions, Vocation, and Stewardship or the Admissions Counselor, and on Wednesdays may include community worship. If you visit on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday during the month of June, you may be able to visit a summer course entitled "The Incarnational Art of Flannery O'Connor." 

Prospective students may be eligible for travel reimbursement and one night of lodging to make your visit feasible. More information is available when you sign up using the link below.

We encourage you to check the homepage for virtual events such as lectures, panels, and special presentations by one of our innovative programs.
