Virginia Private College Week

Washington and Lee invites rising high school juniors and seniors and their families to participate in Virginia Private College Week from July 24-29, hosted by the Council of Independent Colleges in Virginia (CICV).

Plan Your Visit

During a campus visit, all prospective students and their families are invited to sit in on an group information session and take a campus tour. High school seniors also have the option of scheduling an admission interview.


An interview allows the Admissions Office the opportunity to get to know you a little better than your admission application alone might allow. Interviews are available to starting the May of your junior year through the end of Winter senior year and take place either on-campus with an admission staff member or off-campus with an Alumni Admissions Program (AAP) volunteer.
