A campus visit may be the single most important part of the college decision making process. It’s your opportunity to walk the quads, see a classroom, the caf and even a room in one of our residence halls. But most importantly, a visit offers the chance to speak with a current UM student. The Office of Admissions offers two types of visit opportunities; the Purple Tour or Gold Tour.
The Purple Tour is offered every Monday through Friday at 10AM and 2PM and the first Saturday of each month at 10AM. Your visit will include the chance to meet with an Admissions representative and then tour the campus with one of our Montevallo Mavens. If you are interested in speaking with a faculty member from a particular department, let us know and we can arrange a meeting.
However, if you really want to experience what life as a student at Montevallo is like, we suggest you take advantage of our Gold tour. The Gold Tour offers you the opportunity to sit in an actual class with current UM students, tour campus with a Montevallo Maven, speak with an Admissions representative, and have lunch in the student cafeteria, compliments of the University. The Gold Tour is offered every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday beginning at 9AM. You can schedule a tour by contacting the Office of Admissions at 1-800-292-4349 or 205-665-6030 or schedule online today by filling out this short form.
Beginning May 1st we will temporarily be unable to offer the Gold Tour. The university is in a mini-semester prior to summer terms beginning in June and classes are not offered at the traditional times during this mini-term. We will resume the Gold Tour this June. We apologize for any inconvenience.
If you are scheduling your tour online, simply indicate in the drop box below whether you would like to sign up for the Gold Tour or Purple Tour. We look forward to having you on campus!
Throughout the year, the Office of Admissions offers opportunities to visit campus outside of a normal tour. Whether it’s Preview Day, College Night Reception, or Accepted Student Reception, we would love to have you attend our events. Check the calendar below for upcoming events; we hope to see you there!
Have a question for one of our students? Then ask a Montevallo Maven at firstname.lastname@example.org and hear what a student has to say about UM!
