Virginia Private College Week

Virginia Private College Week Details

The 2016 Virginia Private College Week was held July 25-30 at 24 outstanding Virginia private colleges and universities.  Participating institutions hosted two daily programs for rising juniors and seniors -- and their families. Prospective transfer students were also invited. The program included a campus tour and an information session about admissions, financial aid, and academic/extracurricular programs.  Sessions are typically offered Monday through Friday at 9:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m., and at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday.
