Gettysburg Campus Visits

Please note: The Admissions Office will be closed November 21-29. Beginning November 21, there will be no scheduled campus tours until February 1.
Also, as of Friday, November 20, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is requiring that all travelers entering PA from other countries and states have a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to entering the Commonwealth or quarantine for 14 days upon entry into Pennsylvania.

The Gettysburg College Admissions Office will be welcoming visitors on a very limited basis by appointment only. We will continue to add dates and visit options throughout the fall.
