If you’d like to stop by, the Office of Admissions is located on the Fredericksburg campus in Lee Hall, Room 301. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If the office is closed and you’d still like to visit campus, check out the Self Guided Walking Tour. Directions to the Fredericksburg campus and a campus map can be found here.
