Visit Early and Waive Your Application Fee

We believe that seeing the campus is so important that we will waive your application fee if you schedule an official visit to the campus through the Admissions Office before you apply for admission. It’s our way to encourage you to explore our vibrant community and discover for yourself if McDaniel is right fit for your college years.

Registration is required for all programs and is limited to the student and two guests.

Please contact the Office of Admissions at 800-638-5005 or e-mail us to schedule your visit. Please include your full name and address, current high school and enrollment term so we can better serve you.

See Yourself Here

Do you wonder what the campus community really looks like during the academic year when there are deadlines, readings, a half-dozen options for cool things to do, and a sudden desperate need for more caffeine before the next class? When you visit the Hill, you’ll see the real McDaniel in action — and you’ll want to be a part of it all. Choose the type of program that best meets your needs.


Start now and schedule a visit to McDaniel College with one of our Daily Visits offered on weekdays. If you are a counselor interested in bringing a group of students to campus, go to our Group Visit Page


Individual Day at McDaniel visits allow you to build a visit experience that meets your own personal needs and schedule.


At the start of the academic year, weekday Fall Visit Days allow seniors to attend a class, or the Sunday Open House may better suit your family’s travel plans. Transfer students who are considering McDaniel and those who have already applied are invited to attend one of our two Fall Transfer Visit Days.


In the spring we offer Admitted Student Days for our admitted students to get an-depth exposure to campus life before making the final decision to enroll, and we also offer Junior Visit Days specifically targeted for juniors in high school and their families and a Spring Transfer Visit Day for prospect students applying for the upcoming fall or spring semester.
