Scheduling Campus Visits

We encourage students of all grades, ages, and interests to visit Viterbo to get a closer look at our campus, students, faculty, and the facilities that we have to offer. Whether you are helping one student plan a tour or are coordinating a larger group visit, we are happy to have all on campus as our guests.



At Viterbo, 98% of our students receive some sort of financial aid. This may include federal, state, and institutional grants, work study, or low-interest federal loans.
Students can file their FAFSA starting Oct. 1. The 2021 FAFSA will use 2019 tax data, also known as "prior-prior year" tax data. Feb. 1 is Viterbo's priority deadline for students to submit their FAFSA to the university. Please have your students use the code below to have their FAFSA information sent to Viterbo. Because of the accelerated deadline to submit the FAFSA, Viterbo will be sending estimated aid packages this fall and winter, and official aid packages will be sent out in March 2021 as usual.
Viterbo FAFSA Code: 003911
