Summer/Fall Admitted Checklist (View-Only)

These are the simple steps students need to take to complete their enrollment at Illinois.

Checklist for Students

Students must log in to myIllini once they've been admitted to manage their admitted checklist. This view-only checklist is provided to simply showcase the next steps to enrollment.

What To Do First

Students may set their IDs and passwords and view their Financial Aid Award Letter (generally available in mid-March) and other financial aid information before accepting their offer of admission. However, they must accept their offer of admission prior to completing all other steps on the Admitted Student Checklist.


In order for students to accept their offer, they must submit a nonrefundable enrollment fee of $150. This must be done before completing the following steps on the checklist. However, they can check their financial aid status and set their IDs and passwords before accepting their offer of admission.

IDs and Computing

In order for students to check their financial aid status, they must claim and set their NetID and NetID password (including their Active Directory, or AD, password), and Enterprise ID and Enterprise ID password. They will frequently use these to access resources on campus. To claim and set their NetID and NetID password, they need their Admit ID and University Identification Number (UIN), both of which are available when they log in to myIllini.

Tuition Billing and Payment Options

Once a month, an email will be sent to students through their University of Illinois email address, reminding them to view their student account for recent activity and to make any payments by the due date. The University of Illinois does not mail paper billing statements.

To allow a parent to view and make payments for tuition, fees, and University Housing charges, students will need to grant them access to their student account as an Authorized Payer.

Housing applications are available starting December 14, 2013. Students should wait 48 hours after accepting the University's offer of admission before applying for University Housing. At that time, they may complete their University Residence Hall contract online with their housing advance payment, or apply online with a Private Certified Housing facility. Depending on age and year in school, transfer students also have the option of choosing off-campus housing.
