Visit the Calendar
The class schedule reflects the courses currently available for prospective students to visit; it is, however, subject to change on short notice. Please check the availability of classes upon your arrival at the Office of Admissions.
Due to the limited number of seats in each classroom, we cannot guarantee that all guests will be able to attend their top-choice class. No registration is required prior to arrival on campus, but you must depart for your class visit from the Office of Admissions. In some classes, you’ll find student hosts who can give you more information about the professor and the class. Classes with hosts will be identified on a schedule available in the Office of Admissions.
Classes are 90 minutes long. Visitors are required to stay the entire length of the class and are asked not to participate in discussion. Visitors should arrive in Admissions 20 minutes before the start of class.
Have lunch with current Kellogg students and get a feel for what life at Kellogg is like both in and out of the classroom. Lunch will be provided by the Admissions Office. Please meet in the Admissions Office by 12:00 p.m. on the day of a scheduled lunch.

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) maintains an extensive system of elevated trains (also known as “the El”) and buses throughout Chicago and Evanston. The Evanston El stop closest to Kellogg is the Purple Line stop at Foster. The 201 bus departs from the Howard St. terminal and stops on the corner of Foster and Sheridan, directly out front of the Kellogg School.

If you drive to campus, please find a spot on the street and visit the Office of Admissions and Financial Aid to get a parking permit and campus map. If you park in a lot without the required permit, you will be ticketed. Also note that most street parking near the University has a two-hour time limit during the day; the city of Evanston strictly enforces this policy.
