All in-person, individual campus visits to USD through the summer have been canceled to prevent the potential spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). However, virtual visits are available. Sign up below.

Virtual Visits

When: Monday - Friday

Virtual visits typically last between 30 – 45 minutes, where you will meet online with an admissions counselor to go over topics such as the admissions process, financial aid, student life and how USD can help you meet your educational goals. If available, a representative from your academic program of interest may later join the online meeting as well.

After you sign up, you will receive an email prior to your virtual visit with a link to the online meeting.

We hope to see you online soon!
