Virtual Transfer Visit with the University of Iowa

The Insider’s Guide to Colleges says our campus is gorgeous, and Iowa City has been ranked among the best places to live in America. Schedule a campus visit and find out why.

In accordance with recommendations by the State of Iowa and the Iowa Board of Regents to prevent the spread of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), the University of Iowa Office of Admissions is suspending all on-campus visits, tours, and information sessions indefinitely. Currently, we are not taking registrations for future on-campus visits. View updates and additional information about Novel Coronavirus and admissions visit events.
