Cal Poly Special Tours

Green & Gold Tour Days

April 3-6, 2017 & April 10-14, 2017

Green & Gold Tour Days are held during the two-week period when many high schools are on Spring Break and many people are expected on campus.

In order to accommodate the larger crowds, we offer an expanded tour schedule as well as information sessions for both students who plan to apply to Cal Poly and those who have already been accepted.

Spaces during the Green & Gold Tour Days are limited, so sign up early to ensure a spot.

Open House

Cal Poly’s annual Open House will be held from April 6-8, 2017. Instead of regularly scheduled tours and information sessions, Friday, April 7 is designated as Admitted Student Preview Day and is a perfect time for students who have been offered admission to the fall 2017 quarter to visit campus.
