FLC Preview for Admitted Students

Spring events canceled

Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation and increasing closures/travel bans, we have decided to cancel all admission events scheduled until the end of April. We are working to create an online version of FLC Preview that will allow you to interact with campus community members, get your questions answered, and give you as much of a feel for campus as is possible to do virtually.

In the meantime, we do have FLC Virtual Visits up and running! Schedule your one-on-one online appointment with an admission counselor to have your questions answered, find out your next steps, and get connected with other offices across campus.

FLC Preview is a special event designed exclusively for admitted students and their families to spend some time on campus getting to know Fort Lewis College, its atmosphere, and its people. You’ll have a chance to learn more about the many and varied services available to students as well as our academic programs. You’ll also tour residence halls, explore campus and meet your future classmates. You’ll even have the option to register for classes while you’re here.
