Undergraduate Admission

Visit the place you’ll love to call home.

Your campus visit is so much more than seeing the beauty of our campus firsthand. It’s more than meeting our Spider community and discovering the Richmond student experience. It’s more than walking our 350 acres of brickwork, gardens, and walkways. And it’s more than eating our award-winning food … though that’s definitely a nice perk. 

Your campus visit is about envisioning your life as a Spider and seeing the place where you’ll learn, grow, flourish, and call home for years to come. We’re so excited to meet you.

Advice on Negotiating Financial Aid
Families ask about negotiating aid for three reasons: their family’s financial situation has changed, they are shocked to learn that they don’t qualify for extensive need-based aid, or they know they have no need but read that Washington Post story about how everyone should try to negotiate for a scholarship.
