Visit Us

The best way to get to know a college, its environment, people and offerings is by seeing it in person.  We strongly encourage you to visit our campus.  There are many options, explained below.  There are many ways to visit including Get Acquainted Days (Open Houses), Accepted Student Day, Individual Campus Visits, Weekend Information Sessions and Overnight Visits.

As the circumstances with COVID-19 continue to evolve, Saint Vincent College remains vigilant in our monitoring of the situation. Your health and safety are important, which is why Saint Vincent is taking necessary precautions. In-person tours are now being offered on a limited, individual basis.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
