Visit Belhaven

As the country re-opens, Belhaven University is pleased to welcome prospective students along with their parent or guardian to visit the Jackson campus for tours and individual appointments beginning the week of June 8. While we will continue to offer virtual visits with admission counselors and coaches, prospective students will now be able to tour our physical campuses and speak to counselors in person if they desire.

With all fall classes resuming on August 24, we are encouraged to provide this next step in our measured process to best serve you in a safe manner. Visits will be offered daily at 10 am and 2 pm on Monday – Friday and will follow recommended health and government standards including social distancing and wearing face coverings.

Reserve your appointment online or call 601-968-8784 with questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!

 

There are several ways you can visit our campus:

  • Personal Campus Visit - Monday - Friday
  • Discover Days - A larger visit day for High School students and transfers (50-80 students & parents).
  • Junior Day - A larger visit day for High School juniors only (50-80 students & parents).
  • Arts Discover Day - A visit day those interested in Visual Arts, Dance, Music, Theatre, Film Production, GRaphic Design, or Creative Writing. This day is open to High School students and transfers (70-120 students & parents).

We are so confident that you will love what you experience on your visit to Belhaven, we will add $1000 to your first year scholarship package when you come for a personal visit or one of our Discover Days.

Whichever way you decide to visit our campus, it can be personalized. We want to know what you are interested in: Arts? Athletics? Honors College? Let us know what you value, and we will be sure to tailor your campus visit accordingly. You will have the opportunity to explore the campus with a current Belhaven student, meet your personal admission counselor, meet with a professor or coach, and perhaps taste our dining commons fare.
