It's time to choose your classes!
Once you’ve accepted your offer of admission, you’re ready to sign up for summer registration—a one-day, mandatory program in which you'll meet with your advisor and register for classes.
Sign-up will be available in March.
Are you an out-of-state or international student?
We get that you may not be able to make it to campus due to excessive distance. If you live more than 500 miles away, you may be able to meet with an academic advisor and register for classes online. Check myIllini to see if you qualify.
How to Prepare
Complete your college registration homework in advance.
You must complete your homework and any required placement tests at least 2 weeks before your registration date. This will ensure that you're prepared for registration and able to register for the courses you need.
Remember your passwords.
You’ll use your NetID and NetID password to log in to campus computers and the course registration system.
Bring along an official photo ID.
You must have a valid form of identification (for example, a driver’s license or passport) to get your student ID card.
If you're a transfer student, don't forget your course syllabi.
You'll need these for any non-articulated courses listed on your course report.
Wear comfy clothes and walking shoes.
You’ll be walking around campus to get to different buildings during registration, so be sure to dress for the weather!
You’ll spend the day getting to know the university, your classmates, and your college better as you meet with an advisor to map out your academic strategy and select fall classes. A general agenda is below, though your exact schedule will vary depending on your college and major. You’ll receive more details at check-in.
- 8:30 a.m. Check-in at the Illini Union
- 9:00 a.m. University welcome
- 9:45 a.m. College & departmental meetings
- 11:45 a.m. Lunch
- 1:00–5:00 p.m. Advising appointments & course registration
When signing up for summer registration, you’ll have the chance to include the names of any guests you are bringing. Lunch will be covered for yourself and 1 guest (additional lunches are available for purchase). While guests will spend some time with you during the opening session and lunch, they’ll attend a separate program specifically for parents.
