Start Your Application

Freshman applicants can apply to Illinois in one of two ways: myIllini or Coalition. We don't give preference based on application type. Transfer applicants can only apply through myIllini.

Our freshman application is now closed. Submit a petition through myIllini to explain why you're applying after the deadline. If you're applying for Parkland Pathway to Illinois, you can apply through myIllini.

Application Options


Our Illinois application can be accessed through myIllini, our student portal, allowing you to manage your admissions process in one place.
