Visit Maryville College and see why we're considered one of the South's best liberal arts colleges. The students, faculty, and staff welcome visitors to the campus. Visitors should contact the Office of Admissions a minimum of two weeks in advance to request a visit with an overnight stay (available Sunday-Thursday nights during fall, J-term, and spring semesters); a minimum of three days in advance of a one-day visit.

Prospective students are encouraged to spend the night in a residence hall, attend class in a discipline you're really interested in, meet with a professor to discuss a major, have lunch (on us!) in our dining hall, and find out what it's like to be a Maryville student. Overnight stays are offered to current high school seniors and prospective transfer students and are limited to Sunday through Thursday evenings during the fall, J-term, or spring semesters.

We're Open!

The Office of Admissions is open from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm, Monday - Friday, and on select Saturdays during the Academic Year (September-May) from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon.  Write, call, fax, e-mail, or sign up online to request a visit:
