Be Our Guest
Studies show that a visit to campus is the best way to determine if a university is the right one for you. That's why we provide prospective undergraduate students and their families a variety of visit options to choose from, as well as special prospective student incentives that will make your travels more affordable. Did you know that as a prospective freshman or transfer, a campus visit can earn you up to $4,000 towards tuition?
Florida Tech offers a number of ways you and your family can experience Florida Tech's beautiful campus and welcoming community. The choice is up to you:
These full-day Saturday programs include admission and financial aid presentations, campus tours, department meetings, lunch with current students and an academic program fair.
These half-day Friday programs include admission and financial aid presentations, a campus tour and academic department meetings.
These personalized visits, which include a campus tour and meeting with your admission counselor, are offered on most weekdays throughout the year.
