Please understand that the only sanctioned tours offered by CSU Channel Islands are those organized through CSUCI's Admissions and Recruitment and University Outreach departments. Our staff and student ambassadors are highly trained with the most up-to-date and accurate information. We ask that you refrain from contacting any additional source for admissions information or a campus tour. Thank you for your cooperation!

The Admissions Office at CSU Channel Islands provides an opportunity for families and individuals to receive a CSUCI guided tour. Students will learn about the application process, campus resources, and student life.

In-Person Campus Tours:

We will be providing weekday tours Tuesday-Friday at 2:00 p.m. (except holidays). The campus tour is a walking tour. We recommend that you wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen and bring water and snacks. Parking is complimentary as long as you print your parking permit.

Changes to Our Tours:
Check-in will be conducted outside of Sage Hall. In lieu of our in-person Admissions presentation, we have pre-recorded our Freshmen & Transfer Admission presentations. Please take the time to watch these videos before your tour date. Our ambassadors will be happy to answer any questions you may have during your on-campus scheduled tour.

Freshmen presentation - for incoming students graduating from a high school or completing a GED
Transfer presentation - for incoming students transferring from another college/university
