Do you love social media? Check us out!

Here at the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, we get a ton of phone calls and emails, but another way students are communicating with us is via social media. The two main forms of social media our counselors are using are Twitter and Instagram.

We post a ton of information regarding Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, and our travels throughout the year. And some posts are just for fun. If you’re interested in following your counselor, here are our handles. If you don’t know who your counselor is, go ahead and create a myIllini account to find out!

Hi, Zoe. How are you?

I’m an international student who is interested in transferring to University of Illinois in
next semester.

Is there any way that I can check if you received my documents or not?

Thank you,

KyeongJun Yang

Dear Zoe,

I am an International student from China who wants to apply for the Early Action Fall 2017 freshman undergraduate program. But I have some trouble when I am completing the online application. My high school grades are shown as GPA on the transcript, while in your online application form it can be only filled as A-F grading scale. I hope you can tell me how to fill in my grades or can I mail my transcripts to you. I am really eager to join in your esteemed university. Thank you! Looking forward to your reply.
