Campus Visit

It’s free, informative, fun, and can save you money: Iowa Private College Week is your opportunity to get tours of 29 Iowa campuses, including Dordt College in Sioux Center.

From August 4 through August 8 (Monday through Friday) Dordt College invites high school students and parents to stop in at the Admissions Office in the Campus Center at 9 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. Tours will be given daily at these times. Participants will be able to visit with admissions counselors and current Dordt College students to ask questions regarding the college decision process and life as a Dordt College student. Refreshments will also be served.

Iowa Private College Week has been sponsored by the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (IAICU) for 10 years. Prospective students receive an IPCW passport, which will be stamped at each campus that is visited. With a stamped passport, the enrollment application fee is waived, and if your passport is stamped at three or more campuses (maximum of two campuses per day), all participating Iowa colleges and universities will waive your application fee.

Students may pre-register to indicate the day and time they will be coming by calling the Dordt College Admissions department at 722-6080, or toll-free at 1-800-343-6738 (option 1). Individual campus tours may also be arranged by calling this number, or you can request the schedule of group tours offered throughout the ’08-’09 school year.
