We regularly offer informational sessions with admissions counselors and campus tours led by Student Admissions Representatives. During a special event on February 10, you can sit in on miniclasses led by our world-class faculty, learn about student clubs and organizations, find out how you can get involved in the Sarasota community and interact with faculty, staff and students from all areas across campus.
Campus visits are generally offered Monday through Friday except for some holidays and special event days. Tours take place rain or shine. All admissions visitors should go to our Admissions Welcome Center on the first floor of College Hall (located on our Bayfront campus).
While you are here, you can stop by our student-run Four Winds Café, tour our world-class marine research center, stroll through our historic buildings and meet fellow students and professors. While visiting, you can also speak personally to your Admissions and Financial Aid counselors.

A class visit can provide you with a better idea of the unique academic program here at New College of Florida. If you are a current high school junior or senior interested in applying or that has applied please consider this as a next step after your campus visit. Class visits provide an excellent opportunity for prospective students to see first hand the professor and student interactions as well as class sizes.
To request a class visit you will need to complete the class visit request form. This must be completed within two weeks of your desired visit date. Your itinerary will be sent to you via email within a week of your visit.
*Please note that we cannot guarantee a specific course and/or professor for observations.
January is our Independent Study Project (ISP) period and class visits are not available. Class visits will resume mid-February.
We invite your school group to set up a campus visit! We can typically accommodate groups of up to 25 high school and college students between September and January.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 941-487-5000 to arrange a counselor-led admissions talk, and a student-led walking tour.
Be sure to give us at least two weeks’ notice — our student tour guides get booked quickly during peak visit times!
