Fall semester tours are at capacity and we are accepting reservations for spring tours now.

Group Admission Presentations and Guided Tours for Future Student Groups

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 prospective 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. Tours are offered Tuesdays through Fridays at 9:30 a.m. only.  Because requests far exceed capacity, the following groups will receive priority:

  • 11th and 12th graders attending a high school located in Ventura, Santa Barbara, or Northern Los Angeles county.
  • Students attending a community college located in Ventura, Santa Barbara, or Northern Los Angeles county.
  • Requests submitted by September 1 for fall visits and January 1 for spring visits.

Guided Group Tours are not available between May 1 and September 1.

Once confirmed, you will be sent a confirmation packet in the mail.  Please assure 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.
