Transfer Student Visits

Come see why we call this place home.

On-Campus Visits

Your education is important, and Butler University might be the right place for you to finish your degree–even if you didn’t start it here. Schedule a visit to get a feel for our campus and student experience.

Transfer Visit


Interested in transferring to Butler University? Meet one-on-one on campus with an admission counselor to discuss applying and transferring credits.

Students can also opt to join a 60-90 minute walking tour of campus with one of our current students and learn about the student experience, our academic colleges, and more.

Pack a good pair of shoes: Between our 300-acre campus and everything to see in Indianapolis, you’re going to need them!
