Optional meetings with academic colleges may also be scheduled.

Group Tours

Visits for high school (10th-12th) and community college groups of 10 or more students are scheduled Tuesdays through Thursdays at 10 a.m. (excluding University holidays). Please follow this link to view the available dates and request the visit. Groups that are not looking for an undergraduate admissions visit may contact the MSU Welcome Center for all other tours.


Academic College Meetings

After scheduling your visit, your confirmation email will direct you on how to schedule a meeting with specific academic colleges if you would like to speak to a specific college recruiter. Please note that scheduling your visit with the academic colleges through the Office of Admissions helps to streamline the scheduling process and ensures you receive a parking pass. 

* Academic meetings are not guaranteed during the summer months.  

Housing & Recreation Center Tours

An optional Housing & Recreation Center Tour is available daily after your campus tour. Tours are limited in capacity, so please be patient if you experience a small wait time for the tour to begin.
