We understand your concerns regarding the current financial aid delays, and we're sorry this is happening! We're committed to minimizing the impact on you and your family, and, if needed, we will change our FAFSA and college commitment deadlines. Our decision to change our deadlines will be announced no later than March 15. If you have any questions in the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact our Office of Undergraduate Admissions or Office of Student Financial Aid directly.

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 campus visits are offered consistently, while academic meetings 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!)

All Visits

Explore all of our in-person visit options by date! This calendar includes visits hosted by Admissions as well as our academic communities. In most cases, a variety of visit programs are offered each day. If you're interested in attending multiple programs, make sure to sign up for each one separately.
