Cronkite School Tours and Visits



The Cronkite School holds regular building tours and information sessions for prospective undergraduate students that provide in-depth information about Cronkite's programs, curriculum and student opportunities, usually from a knowledgeable staff member.


We highly recommend that prospective students visit on weekday during the fall or spring semester, as that offers families the added opportunity to also visit classes, see students in action and meet key faculty members. However, we will do our best to accommodate visitor schedules, particularly if you're joining us from out-of-state. See below to verify that there is a tour of Cronkite offered on your planned date prior to booking your travel arrangements.


Cronkite also welcomes visitors on most dates when a campus tour is offered. Spring Cronkite tours commence Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. on select dates. There are additional tours at 12:30 p.m. on select Mondays and Fridays as specified below.

During the fall and spring semesters, optional sessions allow prospective students to observe the Cronkite School's nightly newscast on PBS. These sessions are held later in the day, following "Experience ASU" and Cronkite tours.

Scheduled Cronkite tours are preceded by a campus and housing tour and ASU information session. If you need to schedule a Cronkite tour outside of the dates listed above, please contact Cronkite's outreach coordinator at

Tours for Prospective Graduate Students

We recommend that prospective graduate students schedule an appointment to visit the Cronkite School. Scheduling an appointment will provide the best experience and ensures the ability to meet one-on-one with a knowledgeable staff member regarding the admissions process and graduate curriculum. Visits can include a one-on-one session with admission staff, campus tour, class visit or school newscast observation.

Visits are customizable and will be coordinated based on your interests and time availability. Please contact or 602.496.5055 to schedule a visit.
