Campus Visit Letter Policy

The Department of Recruitment and Programs for New Students on the Central Park Campus, Preston Ridge Campus, and Spring Creek Campus will provide a campus visit letter to all students on official Collin College letterhead and have the exact day and time of the visit.
• To receive a campus visit letter, the student (s) must attend and complete the entire guided tour of campus by our Collin College Student Ambassadors during scheduled tour times.
• It is strongly encouraged that students meet with an academic advisor, a financial aid representative, and/or the admissions and records office during their campus visit.

Collin College will not be able to confirm if the student will be excused or not
