Visit ETBU

East Texas Baptist University has suspended all on campus visits in an effort to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We regret that we are not able to host you and your family at this time, but this is necessary as we experience this challenging time.

However, we will be hosting an online virtual information session each day with a member of our Admissions team. During the information session we will be able to answer any questions you have about ETBU as well as giving you details about campus life, academics, athletics, financial aid and so much more. Everyone who participates in a virtual tour will also receive a campus visit packet, including a t-shirt in the mail. If you would rather would like to be notified when campus visits resume then please click here.

We have not determined when campus visits will resume. We will notify you as soon as the campus is open for visits so you can schedule a visit and experience what makes East Texas Baptist University special.

Visiting the campus is the best way to determine if a university will be a good fit for you! Let us customize an individual campus visit to meet your specific needs or come and experience one of our preview days.  Come see for yourself what ETBU has to offer and the exciting experiences that await you!

Schedule a Visit

Prospective students and families can experience ETBU first-hand by scheduling a Campus Visit or Group Campus Visit. This will be so much more than just a campus tour, so get ready.  You will speak with current students and faculty/staff, have the option to sit in on a class, meet with an admissions counselor, experience worship during chapel, try out our buffet-style dining hall, and much more!  We want you to have the best possible experience while you're our guest. Let us know what you would like to do and we will customize your visit.
