Group Visits

Consider this an open invitation! If your students are still in the deciding phase of their college search, we encourage them to visit Wichita State. During their visit, they will have the opportunity to explore our buildings, talk to current students and get a feel for what it's like to be a Shocker student. Groups with members grades 5-8 will be charged a fee of $5 per student to cover staffing and materials costs. Payment is due on the day of the visit.

If your group is smaller than 10 students, please sign up  through our campus visit program.

The Office of Admissions provides group visits for:

  • Fifth grade
  • Middle School (6th-8th grade)*
