Campus Visit Programming

Virtual Visits

Out of an abundance of caution and to prioritize the health and safety of our guests and campus, Iowa State University has made a few changes to our campus visit experiences due to the continuous spread of COVID-19.

We will continue to offer virtual visits with options ranging from daily virtual visits, transfer virtual visits, and specially designed programming for admitted students.

We will also be offering special interest sessions and virtual student-led campus tours. Check out our virtual visits page for more information. Schedule a Virtual Visit



On-Campus Visits

Our on campus visit options are very limited, and all guests will be required to wear a face covering while on campus. In order to accommodate as many guests as possible, we are limiting each guest to only bringing one visitor with them on their visit. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, students, and visitors. Schedule an On-Campus Visit

Open for more? Join our open house.

Experience Iowa State and the amazing adventure ahead of you.

This open house is a Daily Campus Visit and so much more. You’ll talk to a panel of Iowa State students, attend various interest sessions, and tour areas of campus.

In order to provide the best campus visit possible, we ask that each prospective student individually complete the registration form.
