Class Visits

On weekdays during the school year, you and your family are welcome to sit in on a class to better experience Illinois student life.

Things to Note

We ask that you arrive before the class begins and stay the entire time. Don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to the professor. Some classes will have unavailable dates; this is often when quizzes or exams are being administered.

Although not all professors request that you email them prior to attending one of their classes, it's always a great idea to do so to confirm availability.
