Visiting Weekend

If you are a high school junior or senior, or if you are considering transferring to Principia, we invite you to be our guest for an extended three-day weekend visit. Visit classes, meet professors and coaches, experience campus life, and see why Principia attracts Christian Scientists from around the world.

If you're ready to request your spot for a visiting weekend, follow these easy steps:

Step 1

Choose the date of your Visiting Weekend

Step 2

Submit your Visiting Weekend Request Form

Step 3

Book your travel through Principia's travel agent once you are notified that your request to visit is approved. Travel arrangements should be made at least 14 days prior to your departure. You are not officially registered until you have completed this step or confirmed other travel plans with the admissions office.


Step 4

Pay your $50 Visiting Weekend fee. Since Principia's travel fund pays for all but $50 of your visiting weekend, we require this payment be made prior to your arrival. 

If you have questions about the weekend program, please contact Amber McCartt at or 618.374.5175.

Please contact Ifi Xifre Villar, our international admissions counselor, to learn more about visiting opportunities and the admissions application process.

I had an amazing time there with all the activities and the great people. I had a lot of fun reuniting with old friends and meeting new ones. Thanks again!

I’m so glad I met my professor on my visiting weekend and that he convinced me to sit in on his database class. I cannot even begin to tell you how much gratitude I have for the computer science department. You pushed me to really grow up and learn many skills I will have the rest of my life.
