Applying to College
COVID has complicated the college visit process, but virtual visits are a safe alternative. Online tours and info sessions help bridge the gap when students can’t check out a campus in person.
- Many colleges are offering virtual tours on their websites. The Washington GEAR UP program has compiled a list of online college tours that will be updated as more sites add these resources.
- GEAR UP also offers a series of virtual campus visits. These video presentations highlight colleges across the state, including a number of public and private four-year universities and two-year community and technical colleges.
- For schools with no virtual tours available, consider doing an online scavenger hunt. Use the form to research, compare choices, and find a good fit.
