Tours and Class Visits

For prospective students, there are three visit options that you can combine to suit your needs (each form must be filled out separately to register):

  • To begin, schedule a presentation and tour, offered most weekdays at 9am and 1pm.
  • If you have time, think about an academic visit where you can sit in on a class (available September - November).
  • If you're planning to apply to SMC, you may also consider an interview. It's a great way to meet an admissions counselor to talk about your interests and background.

Guest/Visitor Parking 

Please pick up a temporary parking permit at the Public Safety Front Gate. Visitors may park in one of our four reserved parking designated visitor lots or where directed by Public Safety personnel. Check-in on the first floor of Brother Jerome West Hall. 

Our one hour presentation by an Admissions Officer is followed by an hour-long guided tour by a Student Ambassador.
