College Visits

2018-2019 College/Military Visits

This is the growing list of schools and institutions coming to Valley to visit with students this year. Students interested in meeting with admissions representatives should sign up through Naviance Student. On the visit day, students should show their teacher their registration for the college visit via Naviance Student on their Chromebook or smartphone. Attendance will be taken in the Counseling Center and will be excused as a college visit. Visits typically last 30-60 minutes. (The dates for completed visits are listed in orange.)

The name of each institution links you directly to the school or military branch website.
