CSU Channel Islands is committed to providing access to the campus for groups interested in learning more about the University. Group campus tours are organized with the future college student in mind, and are not intended for general school field trip purposes. Our expectations are as follows:

Coordinator Expectations

  • Please be on time. If your group is late we may not be able to fully accommodate your visit.
  • If you must cancel your campus visit, please immediately notify Lori Macdonald at lori.macdonald@csuci.edu. If you cancel the day of your visit please email and call 805-437-3215.

Chaperone Expectations

  • Visiting groups should provide 1 chaperone per 10 students.
  • Chaperones are responsible for keeping students with their group at all times.
  • Chaperones should be actively involved in the visit—participating in the group tour, sharing meals with students, and monitoring student behavior.
  • Chaperones should assist in keeping the group visit on schedule.
  • Chaperones are responsible for making sure that their students are aware of and understand expectations for student behavior.

Student Expectations

  • The purpose of the campus visit to CSU Channel Islands is for each student to seriously explore his/her options in higher education.
  • CSU Channel Islands expects our visiting students to be respectful of each other, our staff, all presenters, and all facilities and property of CSUCI at all times.

Should your group want to take pictures or videos of their experience, they may do so in outdoor spaces only.

Your cooperation with the above guidelines is greatly appreciated and assures that we will continue to have successful campus visits in the future. If you have any questions about these guidelines please feel free to contact Lori Macdonald at 805-437-3215 or lori.macdonald@csuci.edu.
