Canceled: University of Minnesota Rochester Admitted and Prospective Student Visits

Starting March 16, the University of Minnesota Rochester Office of Admissions is cancelling all prospective student visits and events as a precautionary measure to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 exposure to our University community and prospective students.

Students will be notified via email regarding changes to events or visits, and we will post updates online at We are working on alternate ways for students to learn about the University of Minnesota Rochester and how they can earn a degree in the heart of the medical world. 

Our goal is to keep students, families, staff and our community safe. We will keep you informed when we have updates to our visit and event schedule.

After April 1, visits and events will be re-evaluated by leadership within the University. If at that time we are able to re-open our visits and events schedule, that message will be distributed and our schedule will be updated in our visit calendar.

We sincerely appreciate your interest in visiting the University of Minnesota Rochester, as well as your patience and understanding as this situation evolves. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 1-877-280-4699 or
