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 or (614) 688-8212.
