Outreach: Request K-8th Grade Outreach Experience Visit & Tour

Welcome to George Mason University’s K-8th Grade Outreach Experience request page. We offer tours for schools and organizations that serve students in grades K-8. These visits focus on general college access and include a campus tour, a presentation about university life, admissions and financial aid, and a Q&A session with a college counselor, an outreach specialist, or current college students.

We have limited availability to host schools and operate predominately on a first-come-first-serve basis. However, we do make exceptions to assist organizations that support first-generation and underrepresented student groups. Available dates fill up quickly, so please plan well in advance! Available dates are listed on the K-8th Grade Outreach Experience form. Please remember that filling out the form does not guarantee we are able to accommodate your visit. You must receive an email with specific details to confirm your visit. Request a tour for students in grades K-8 by using this link.

Guidelines

  • A maximum of 150 students per trip — groups larger than this must be split into multiple groups, over multiple days.
  • For schools visiting on multiple dates, there is a maximum of 3 visits per school per semester.
  • A minimum of 10:1 student-to-chaperone ratio is required.
  • If you would like to have lunch in the dining hall, our office will help arrange this, but it is based upon availability. Please note that there is a cost associated with this option. You also have the option of bringing lunch. If you choose to do this, we will help you find an ideal location to eat.

Thank you for your interest; we look forward to helping support your students in their pursuit of a college education!
