Manage checklist

Accept/Decline

You can accept your offer of admission any time up until May 1. To do so, you must submit a nonrefundable acceptance fee of $150 using a credit or debit card. This must be done before completing most of the following steps on the checklist (you can apply for financial aid and check its status beforehand). If you were approved for an application fee waiver, the acceptance fee will be waived.

Financial Aid

If you're interested in financial aid, we encourage you to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible and have it sent to UIUC. Financial Aid Notifications are generally available beginning in mid-March. International students are not eligible for financial aid and don't submit the FAFSA.

NetID & Computing

After you've accepted your offer of admission, claim and set your NetID and NetID password. You'll frequently use your NetID to access resources on campus. To claim and set your NetID and NetID password, you need your Activation Code and University Identification Number (UIN), both of which are available when you log in to myIllini.

Housing

You should wait 24 hours after accepting the university's offer of admission before applying for University Housing. At that time, you may complete your contract online with your housing advance payment or apply online with a Private Certified Housing facility. Private Certified Housing halls fill on a first-come, first-served basis, so deadlines to guarantee space vary.

Transfer students may have the option to live in off-campus housing, but they should contact the Housing Information Office before signing a lease. Freshmen must live in University Housing or Private Certified Housing.

Registration

During registration, you’ll meet with academic advisors and register for fall courses. All incoming students will conduct advising and registration through an online appointment. Sign-up begins in mid-March.

Freshmen are required to take a pre-registration assessment (ALEKS) before signing up for registration. Once you complete this assessment, it may take up to two business days for your record to be updated. You'll be able to select your registration date after that time.

Placement

You must complete your placement exams at least two weeks before you participate in your registration program, or your appointment may be subject to cancellation. Placement exams will be available in May. Note that they may not be required for some transfer students.

College Registration Homework

Each academic program requires all incoming students to complete pre-registration homework. You must complete this homework at least two weeks before you participate in your registration program. Homework will be available in May.

Test Scores

If you reported test scores within the application, send official scores directly from the testing agency. Official test scores not yet received will be listed on your admitted checklist in myIllini. We must receive official scores by July 1. If you're enrolling in the summer term, the deadline is June 1. We highly recommend that official scores are submitted prior to your New Student Registration appointment.

Final Transcripts/Schedule Changes

Freshmen

Final transcripts need to be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as soon as final grades are posted. You must send official documentation of all courses and grades submitted through the application, including year 12 and high school graduation, by July 1. If you're enrolling in the summer term, the deadline is June 1. Any AP or IB scores should be sent through the testing agency to receive UIUC credit.

Transfers

Final transcripts need to be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions as soon as final grades are posted. Spring college transcripts must be submitted by June 15. If you’re also enrolled in summer courses, you’ll need to send an additional transcript as soon as final summer grades are posted.

We must approve changes to your high school or college schedule before you make them as they could impact your admission status. If you're planning a change in your schedule, submit the online Course Change Form found at the bottom of your admitted checklist in myIllini.

Tuition Billing & Payment Options

Once a month, an email will be sent to you through your UIUC email address, reminding you to view your student account for recent activity and to make any payments by the due date. We don't mail paper billing statements.

To allow parents to view and make payments, you must grant them access to your account as an Authorized Payer. To receive a refund for a credit balance on the account, you must sign up for direct deposit. Funds won't be withdrawn from a bank account set up for direct deposit purposes.
