Welcoming prospective students and their families to learn more about what Sweet Briar could offer them, as future students.   

Welcoming prospective students to campus to learn more about what Sweet Briar College could offer them if they choose to study here.

Twenty-three outstanding Virginia private colleges and universities will host at least two daily information sessions for prospective students, including rising juniors, seniors, and their families. Prospective transfer students are also invited.
It is important that you contact each college directly to make arrangements for your visits because they may have some limits on the number of families that can be accommodated at each session and the times for their sessions vary from campus to campus.
Programs will include information sessions about academic/extracurricular programs, the admission process, and financial aid/scholarships. Learn more at their website here.
