Visit Villanova

Visit us virtually

Under the direction of Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf, Villanova University's campus has closed until further notice. All in-person admission visits and campus tours have been suspended through the start of the fall semester. Click here to view an updated list of Undergraduate Admission FAQs.

We hope to resume in-person visits and campus tours with the start of fall classes in late August. As that determination is made, more information will be shared on this page. We encourage all prospective undergraduate and transfer applicants to join our mailing list to receive updates. Until we are able to welcome you to campus, we hope you'll join us online!

Villanova Virtual Visit

Join us for a live, one-hour online event to learn more about Villanova University! The session will be broken into two parts. First, one of our Admission staff members will present on the University and our five promises to students - academic excellence, personal attention, strong community, service to others and a foundation for lifelong success - along with details on the undergraduate admission process. Immediately following, current students will take you on an interactive virtual tour of campus and share with you exactly what it is like to be a Villanovan. There will be time for Q&A with all the speakers.

Just A Note...

Villanova does not conduct interviews as part of our admission process, nor do we track demonstrated interest. Once we are able to host visitors again, prospective and admitted students are encouraged to visit us on a weekday when campus is most active and vibrant. If you are unable to visit campus prior to applying (or attend one of our online sessions), it will have zero bearing on your application or admission decision.

The Office of Undergraduate Admission has suspended all domestic and international travel through the end of the spring semester. We apologize that we will not be able to visit you this spring but encourage you to join us online for our live, virtual Nova Nation Presentations during this time.

We hope to be able to resume our normal travel schedule for fall college fairs, high school visits and presentations. You can always check out our Villanova Visits You page to see when and where we will be on the road in the future!

During these unprecedented times, Villanova University is fully aware of how curriculum is being impacted. For example, Villanova is offering current students the ability to take classes with grades of satisfactory/unsatisfactory this semester.

Any shifts to your grading scale over this period of time will be considered in our review of transcripts. We are mindful of all of the adjustments that have been made in response to our current global climate, and you will not be penalized for any changes made outside of your control.

Villanova University has announced a test-optional policy for the 2020-21 Admission Cycle. Click here for more details.

No. We want to reiterate that demonstrated interest is not used as a criterion for admission. 

Additionally, a reminder that Villanova does not conduct interviews as part of our admission process.

We remain available to you at gotovu@villanova.edu for any questions that you may have.
