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.

***We are currently at full capacity for K-8th grade campus visits for the Spring 2019 semester. We will be opening dates for the Fall 2019 semester beginning June 2019 and will be contacting schools on our waitlist on a first-come, first-serve order. You may sign up in advance and fill out our tour request form below. Schools on our waitlist are not guaranteed an Admissions Office-sponsored tour and visit until confirmed by a George Mason University representative. Please reach out to Cristian Pineda at cpineda1@gmu.edu if you have any further questions. 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!
