Campus Tours

We would love to show you around!

You’re invited to schedule a campus tour Monday–Friday and select Saturdays. Each campus tour begins with an admissions presentation followed by a student-led tour of campus. The whole experience will take about 2 hours. 

 

  • If you encounter any difficulty while registering for a tour, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions by email at admissions@calbaptist.edu or by phone at 951-343-4212.
  • Can't make it to one of our scheduled visits? Come on campus yourself and explore on your own with this handout for your own self-guided tour.

 

Personalize your visit to maximize your day

In addition to your presentation and tour, you may have the option to add some personalized elements to your campus visit. Here are some options that you will be able to register for when you sign up for your tour.

  • Meet with an admissions counselor.
    • Do you have additional questions? Take this opportunity to meet one on one with an admissions counselor. We do not want you to leave with any unanswered questions!
  • Eat in one of our top ranked campus dining locations.
    • Meal tickets are available for the student and up to 2 guests.
    • Meal tickets cannot be used at El Monte Grill or Sunday Brunch at the Alumni Dining Commons.
  • Meet with a professor (for high school juniors, seniors and transfer students).
    • Appointments are based on availability of the professor and the date of your visit and are only offered during the fall and spring semesters.
  • Sit in on a class (for high school juniors and seniors and transfer students).
    • Classes are limited based on availability and the date of your visit and are only offered during the fall and spring semesters.
  • Attend chapel.
    • We would love for you to join us for worship and an inspirational speaker by attending chapel in our state-of-the-art Events Center. You can take a look at the chapel schedule here. Chapel is available most Tuesdays at 10:45 a.m. to coincide with your visit.

We hope to see you soon!
