Visit Campus


Beginning July 1 2020, East Tennessee State University will reopen our campus to prospective students and their guests. Official Campus Visits will begin on July 6th, 2020. For the health and safety of our visitors and campus community, we have developed and implemented safety measures that align with CDC recommendations. We will provide additional information to you at the time of your visit. In the meantime, here are some preliminary protocols:

  • If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you contact one of our admissions counselors and enjoy a virtual tour and information session until you have recovered. Feel free to enjoy our virtual experiences at in the meantime- we’ll be here for you!
  • Please click here to read the University's Facial Covering Policy. If you are unable or unwilling to wear a mask, you will not be permitted to participate in the in-person campus visit experience. We will be glad to provide you with online campus visit and tour resources. In the coming weeks, we will also provide an option for you to take a self-guided audio tour that you may take in your personal vehicle which will not require a face covering. We are available to answer your questions about campus through phone, email, chat, or Zoom.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in multiple locations on campus.
  • Please limit the total number of people in your party to 3 (one student registrant + 2 guests). Our total group size, including employees, must be 10 people or less per campus visit experience.
