Prospective applicants are welcomed to visit the Moritz College of Law during the summer. We ask that prospective students call us at least one week in advance to make arrangements for an informational session and/or a tour of Drinko Hall. Please note individual visits are subject to the availability of the Admissions Staff and we are not able to accommodate unscheduled appointments/walk-ins.
Due to Student Orientation and the first week of classes, we will not conduct visits during the second and third weeks of August. Also to note, from mid April until September, there will not be any courses to observe.
Academic Year Visits
The Moritz College of Law welcomes prospective applicants who wish to visit during the fall semester. If you are unable to attend an Open House session, but still wish to visit the college, you may do so by scheduling an appointment with an Admissions Representative. An Admissions Office representative will be available for informational sessions and building tours. In addition, visitors may attend a first-year class. We require three (3) days notice to schedule class visits. Please call (614) 292-8810 to make arrangements for an informational session, a tour of Drinko Hall and/or to observe a class. Each session will last approximately one hour and each class session (optional) will last approximately one hour.
The Open House is an informational session designed to provide you with the opportunity to visit the Moritz College of Law and meet with members of the college’s Admissions Office. The session will cover the application process, financial aid and career service.
Parking is available at the South Campus Gateway parking garage located east of High Street, and is accessible from East 9th and East 11th Avenues and at the Ohio Union Parking Garage on High Street (just north of 12th Ave.).
To view our open house schedule, please visit the admissions calendar.
Admitted Students’ Visitation Programs
Visitation programs are scheduled during spring semester for candidates who have been offered admission. Applicants who are admitted to the Moritz College of Law should plan to attend one of the College’s special visitation programs for admitted applicants. These events are hosted during the months of January through April and provide the opportunity to meet members of the faculty, staff, alumni and student body.
We offer several Visitation Day program formats including half-day programs, one-day programs, and visitation weekends. Overnight accommodations are provided for each visitation program for admitted students residing outside of a 40-mile radius of the Columbus Metropolitan area. If you are unable to make one of the scheduled Visitation Day programs, you should contact the Office of Admissions to schedule an individual visit.
Registration information and visitation program agendas has been sent electronically to all admitted students. If you did not receive the invitation and are interested in attending one of our events, please contact Jimmi Nicholson, Assistant Director of Admissions/Office of Diversity & Inclusion at email@example.com or (614) 688-8212.
