Thank you for visiting the Exploration Day site!


The Office of Admissions & Recruitment invites you and your family to explore your options at Pierpont Community & Technical College.  On select days throughout the regular semester, academic-based Exploration Days will be held on the campus in Fairmont, WV.  Exploration Days are an excellent opportunity for families to visit and experience our campus in full-swing. 

Exploration Days will begin in the morning and can be expected to wrap up early afternoon, depending on which optional services each family chooses to take advantage of. Students and their family members will attend an admissions presentation upon arrival (refreshments will be provided) and will enjoy complimentary lunch in our dining hall. The highlight of Exploration Days is the departmental visit, which will take place prior to lunch.  The departmentla visit includes an opportunity for famlies to meet in small groups with facutly and/or academic deans.  Spending time in the academic department a student is most interested in is a significant value and will aid the student greatly in decision-making.  While the academic-focused departmental visits are a featured component of Pierpont Exploration Days, we are also excited to offer campus tours to those who are interested.  In addition, families will be welcome after lunch to visit Enrollment Services offices (such as Admissions, Financial Aid, and Housing) as needed before departing.


Currently we do not have any Exploration Days scheduled.  

Please check back in the Fall for more events!
