We ask that all groups with students please provide one adult chaperone for every 15 students. Campus tours are led by Southern Ambassadors, and those chaperones visiting with your group are asked to accompany the tour to help your group stay together and organized. Florida Southern reserves the right to cancel the campus visit if chaperones are unavailable.

Your group’s visit will be confirmed by the Office of Admissions via email, and we will provide you with the date, time and arrival location for your group. Groups who do not show for their scheduled visit or cancel within 24 hours of their visit day will be reviewed prior to future requests. Due to student tour guide and staff availability, Florida Southern reserves the right to cancel all group tours running 30 or more minutes late.
