Important Campus Tour Update

Admissions Campus Tours & Events Cancelled Indefinitely

Spelman College made the difficult decision to suspend large campus gatherings as we work to limit the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. All campus recruitment activities continue to be cancelled, including scheduled family and group tours.

We know this is an important decision time for the Class of 2024, so we are working to develop engaging online options to virtually share Spelman’s unique offerings, answer questions, and introduce current students and faculty to our newly admitted cohort. More details will be shared soon in the admitted student portal.

We understand the time and attention it takes in planning your tour and visit to Spelman College. Please know our decision was made after careful deliberation and consideration of currently available guidance from public health organizations. Our goal is to manage a healthy and safe environment for all.

For more details on Spelman’s full response to the pandemic, please visit Spelman’s Coronavirus Update page.

As one of the nation's leading liberal arts institutions, Spelman educates women who will change the world, and we invite you to come and experience everything the institution has to offer. Located five minutes from downtown Atlanta, Spelman is a historic landmark that sits on 39 lush acres. Generations of wise women and men have devoted their time and energy to build this house of learning, and have set a table of academic opportunity for students.
