On-Campus Appointments, Tours and Virtual Visit Opportunities
On-Campus Appointments and/or Campus Tours
ATTENTION: Due to the City of Chicago's Travel Advisory. we ask that unvaccinated guests from impacted states and residents of Illinois or other states who travel to states covered by the advisory defer their visit to campus until they have fulfilled the advised 10-day quarantine. Fully vaccinated individuals are exempt from the advisory.
To schedule an on-campus appointment with an admission counselor and/or a campus tour, please submit our Campus Visit Registration Form.
- SXU requires that everyone on campus, regardless of vaccination status, wear masks indoors.
- At this time, masking remains optional for fully vaccinated individuals for outdoor activities where distancing is possible. Unvaccinated community members are required to mask at all times on campus.
- Visitors to the Office of Admission should park in Parking Lot 11.
- For the safety of staff and guests, ample hand sanitizer stations are located near the Office of Admission and throughout campus. Restrooms are located nearby, and frequent hand washing is encouraged.
Test optional Admission Policy
Due to COVID-19's significant disruption on students' ability to take the ACT or SAT
exam, SXU announced a test-optional admission policy for freshmen applying for the
fall 2021 semester, which has since been extended to applicants for the spring 2022
and fall 2022 semesters. This means that ACT or SAT scores will not be required for
fall 2021, spring 2022, or fall 2022 applicants and will not be used in admission
decisions or for calculating merit scholarships, with some exceptions.
For additional details, we encourage you to visit our No Test Required Admission Policy page.
