School Year Visits (August 26—April 27)
During the school year we welcome visits Monday through Saturday. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we offer more class visit options and chapel services.
On any week day, you may meet with our Associate Director of Admissions, take a tour of campus with an Admissions Representative, meet with Financial Aid or Records, go to classes and meet with professors and coaches. When you submit your visit form or call in to schedule a visit you will receive a confirmation with directions and a brief summary of your visit. When you arrive for your visit you will receive a detailed itinerary.
Meet the Associate Director of Admissions
This is usually a half-hour meeting with our Associate Director of Admissions, Sarah Ocando. She will get to know you, answer questions and give a brief "introduction" to Covenant through explaining Covenant's motto and mission as a Christ-centered liberal arts college
Take a Campus Tour
We allow an hour and a half for this walking tour of campus, given by one of our Admissions Representatives. The tour will highlight the major buildings on campus and explain some of its history. Your Admissions Representative will also be able to share more about life at Covenant and discuss the application process, academics and campus community.
Eat in the Great Hall
If you are here between 11:30-2:00 you have the opportunity to eat in our Great Hall. You may eat with a current student or with an Admissions Representative as part of your tour.
Attend a Class
Experiencing classes at Covenant College is a crucial part of the college search process. We offer all students the opportunity to sit in on classes. Please notify the Visit Coordinator if you would like to visit a class in a specific subject.
Chapel is on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 11-11:35 am. Chapels vary throughout the semester and may be led by students, faculty or guest speakers or our campus chaplain. The chapel schedule for this academic year is available on our online calendar.
Meet with a Financial Aid Advisor
A meeting with one of our financial aid advisors is scheduled for seniors or by request. This meeting will give you more detailed information about applying for FAFSA, loans and scholarships and the basic information about tuition and fees for the next academic year.
Meet with Records
If you are a transfer student or have dual enrollment credit, we encourage you to have a brief meeting with our Dean of Records to discuss transfer credits. Please fax or mail your transcript ahead of time to 706-419-1179.
Meet with a Professor
If you know your area of academic interest, we encourage you to request a meeting with a faculty member from that department. We will arrange these meetings as schedules permit. Meetings with faculty members offer an in-depth look at particular departments.

Meet with a Coach
If you are interested in continuing a certain sport in college, please request a meeting with an Athletic Coach while you are here. Covenant athletics include women's basketball, soccer, softball,volleyball, tennis, golf and cross country and men's basketball, soccer, baseball, tennis, golf and cross country.
If you are a senior and interested in declaring Music as a major or minor, please download the audition packet, fill it out, and send it in to Sarah DeWaters, Music Department Secretary, preferably two weeks before your audition.
When considering when to schedule an overnight visit, we recommend staying overnight on a weeknight so you will be able to attend class and visit campus during the week either the day of or the day after your overnight stay.
Please try to give us at least one week notice to schedule an overnight stay, which is available to sophomore, junior and senior prospective students. You will be hosted by one of our Admissions Ambassadors who are current students living on-campus in one of our residence halls. Some of our Ambassadors have an extra bed, futon or couch available, but some only have floor space. Please be sure to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towel and overnight toiletries for your stay.
Saturday visits include a campus tour and the option of lunch in the Great Hall with an Admissions Representative or a current student. Our office is open from 9:00-4:00 on Saturdays.
