Group Tour Request

Group Campus Tours

Our group tours provide an overview of Columbia's programs and facilities. Group tours will generally include a 15- to 30-minute presentation about the college and a 90-minute tour of campus. We will abbreviate the information session on request but are unable to offer campus tours shorter than one hour.

We are happy to provide special tours for groups of 10 or more people from high schools, community colleges, and other organizations. Please keep the following in mind when considering booking a group tour:

  • A group tour consists of 10–40 individuals. If you have fewer than 10 guests, please register for the regular campus tour.
  • All students must be in 9th grade or older. Due to the high demand for group tours, we are unable to offer tours for younger students.
  • At least one chaperone is required for every 10 students. Chaperones are responsible for the actions of their students. Please make sure they are respectful and attentive and do not engage in disruptive activities such as talking on cell phones, horseplay, or leaving the group.
  • Group tours must be requested at least 2 weeks in advance. 

Please indicate the grade level of the students:

In keeping with our priority of serving high school student visitors, we rarely approve requests from elementary and middle school groups.

Please check all that apply.

Please list your preferred visit dates and times, in order of preference.

Group tours may be scheduled on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays at 9:30 a.m. or 2:30 p.m.
