In-Person Visit Options

The best way to know if a school is for you is simply by being there. Visit and find out for yourself what it’s like to be an Illini.

Tips for Scheduling Your Visit

  1. If you're interested in attending multiple programs when visiting campus, you need to sign up for each one separately. Note that admissions visits are offered consistently, while academic visits vary in availability.
  2. Although we consider a lot of factors when making an admission decision, visiting campus isn't one of them. (Trust us, though, you'll be glad if you do!)
