Schedule your Visit to SJU

Visit campus and see for yourself how our students live greater everyday.

Visiting campus is the best way to experience life on Hawk Hill. When you set foot on our campus and walk the halls of our academic buildings, you will find yourself quickly enveloped by our school spirit. You will quickly learn about SJU's dedication to service, and passion for learning that our University represents. Whether you choose to visit at an open house, a weekday guided tour, or another event, we can't wait to greet you. Choose the visit that best fits your schedule and be sure to tag your photos or tweets with #VISITSJU to share your favorite moments. 

Join in the Jesuit mission of giving back and bring a non-perishable food item when you visit. All donations collected go to Philabundance, a local non-profit.

Ask – A – Counselor

Available Monday through Friday upon request. While we do not require an interview as part of our admissions process, these "one-on-one" appointments are available should you have detailed questions about the admissions process that would not typically be addressed in a presentation. Please call 610-660-1300 for an appointment.

Transfer Decision Days

Meet one-on-one with a transfer counselor to discuss the admission, financial aid, and the transfer credit evaluation process. Come see what life can be like for you if you continue your degree at Saint Joseph's. Students must bring their college transcript(s) to receive a preliminary credit evaluation and an on-the-spot transfer decision.

Events happening May 12, June 8, July 13 and August 10.
