Group Admission Presentations and Guided Tours

The Admissions Office at CSU Channel Islands provides an opportunity for groups from high schools, community colleges, and community-based organizations (e.g., Boys and Girls Clubs) to receive a group admissions presentation and guided tour. This program is intended for future applicants to CSU Channel Islands and not suitable for general school field trip purposes. Students will learn about the application process, campus resources and student life

Reservations are required. We will not accommodate groups without them. Guided tours are offered Tuesdays through Fridays at 9:30 a.m., only.  Because requests far exceed capacity, we give priority to schools located in the following area: 

  • Ventura, Santa Barbara, and Northern Los Angeles Counties.

Guided Group Tours are not available during January and are limited during summer.

Self-guided tours are available five days a week when campus is open. Please use the online RSVP form to register. When registering, include the time you will arrive. 

Once confirmed, you will be sent a confirmation packet in the mail.  Please make sure that your reservation has the correct contact information. 

It is recommended that you do not make travel arrangements until your reservation has been confirmed.  We are unable to accommodate groups larger than 50.
