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. Does a weekend visit fit your schedule better? Join us for a Saturday Information Session and Tour. If you are a counselor interested in bringing a group of students to campus, go to our Group Visit Page


Autumn is a great time of the year to be on campus and we will be hosting four Fall Visit Days (each program includes a class visit and lunch on campus!) as well as our traditional Fall Sunday Open House.


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


In the Spring we offer Junior Visit Days.  More information to come in January.
