Visit Harris Public Policy

Campus Visit Program

Harris welcomes campus visitors throughout the fall quarter on select Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays (October - November). A campus visit includes observing a class, coffee with a current student, and meeting with a staff member in Admissions and Career Development. Campus visits can be arranged by using the link below.

If your schedule does not permit a visit during one of our campus visit dates or you would like to visit in the summer months, please contact to inquire about availability at an alternate time. Alternate visits are limited to meeting with an admission staff member only.
