Traditional Campus Tour 

Concord University is pleased to offer limited in person campus tours this fall.  Tours are scheduled at 10 am and 1 pm each day, Monday through Friday, and will take a little more than an hour to complete.

During the fall term our goal is to keep you, your family, and our staff safe while you visit.  So we ask that you follow certain common practices that include:
  • Wearing a mask while on campus
  • Adhering to social distancing of 6 feet at all times
  • Limiting your group to the prospective student and no more then two (2) additional family/friends
  • Not visiting if you, or any members of your party, are ill, or have been in contact with anyone who is ill within the past 2 weeks.
We also ask that you make reservations at least a day in advance as we will not be conducting "walk in" tours. This allows our staff time to clean between each visit.

We will take the temperatures of those visiting campus.  If anyone in your party has a fever, we will ask you to reschedule. 

By signing up for a tour you agree to follow the guidelines listed here and any updated guidelines issued by the CDC or the State of West Virginia.

Please click here to sign up for a tour.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
