What to expect for your on-campus visit

To ensure the health and safety of the Arizona State University community and our visitors, we have put the following measures in place based on Arizona public health directives and the Centers for Disease Control.

Before your on-campus visit

We require all visitors to register before arriving on campus. To register for a campus tour, go to visit.asu.edu. At this time, we are limiting all visiting families to three members: the prospective student and two guests. We are not able to accommodate walk-in visitors due to space and social distancing guidelines. If there are no available in-person tours that fit your schedule, we have self-guided options.

Check for COVID-19 symptoms

We ask you to perform a COVID-19 health check before arriving on campus. Please refrain from visiting campus if you do not feel well or if you have recently been in contact with someone who has contracted COVID-19. If you can answer “yes” to any of these questions, please do not attend your campus tour. Email visitasu@asu.edu to cancel your tour and attend our live-hosted virtual visit experiences.

  • Do you or your guests feel sick or ill?
  • Do you or your guests have a fever of 100.4 degrees or higher?
  • Have you or your guests experienced any new respiratory symptoms, such as a cough or shortness of breath, within the last 14 days?
  • Have you or your guests had close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or who has been tested and is waiting for results while they had symptoms or in the two weeks before they began showing symptoms? Review the definition of “close contact” in our visitor screening question in ASU’s novel coronavirus FAQ page

ASU has partnered with the Arizona Department of Health Services to offer free saliva-based COVID-19 tests at locations throughout the state. If you are interested in taking advantage of the free testing offered, appointments are required and test results are received within 48 hours.

Face coverings and hand washing

Per CDC guidelines, you and your guests are encouraged, especially if you are not vaccinated, to wear a face covering when visiting campus. Face coverings should cover both your nose and mouth. Regardless of vaccination status, ASU encourages all visitors to wear face covers in crowded areas and venues, as well as any other time they wish.

Visitors are asked to maintain proper hand hygiene while on campus by washing hands or using hand sanitizer.

On the day of your visit

On the day of your scheduled campus tour, allow up to 15 minutes to park. Show up to your check-in location no more than 10 minutes prior to your visit time. Your walking tour will take approximately 30–60 minutes depending on the campus. Specific information for arriving on campus, parking and check-in location will be included in your confirmation and reminder emails.

Tour groups will be limited to up to 5 families per tour guide. Each family will be allowed one student and up to two guests.

Tour groups will receive an in-person information session, followed by a walking tour of campus. Academic session and housing tour options vary by day and campus. View the visit scheduler to see the most up-to-date information. For the safety of our campus community, we are limiting the number of building interiors tour groups will enter.

Remember to wear comfortable shoes and to bring sunscreen and water, because your walking tour will take place in the Arizona sunshine.

You may also attend one or more of our live-hosted virtual visit experiences to get admission and enrollment information, hear from academic units and Barrett, The Honors College, sit in on a student panel, or complete an admission or financial aid workshop. For specific questions, you can schedule a virtual one-on-one appointment with your personal admission representative at asu.edu/findmyrep..

Questions

While ASU is taking all precautions to safeguard our community, we cannot eliminate the risk of COVID-19 exposure and infection on campus. Please remember that you are undertaking your visit at your own risk. If any visitor shows symptoms or tests positive for COVID-19 within 48 hours of visiting campus, please report that information to ASU Health Services at 480-965-3349.

If you have any questions about your upcoming visit, please email visitasu@asu.edu. For campus-wide updates on COVID-19 protocols, go to coronavirus.asu.edu or asu.edu/fall2020.
