Transfer Spring Admitted Next Steps
So, you’re heading to Illinois this spring! Before you begin packing your bags, I want to provide you some information on the next steps you will need to take to complete the transfer process and successfully begin your journey as an Illini.
1. Accept your offer.
You’ve been admitted, and that’s a big deal! You can accept your offer through your myIllini account. You must also a submit a nonrefundable enrollment fee.
2. Successfully complete your classes at your current institution.
It is a condition of your admission that you maintain your grades for your final semester before transferring. You can start preparing for Illinois, but don’t lose sight of the classes you are in now!
3. Complete your admitted student checklist.
This checklist is located on your myIllini account, and it will allow you to preview and manage the next steps to enrollment. You will be able to claim your NetID, figure out how to register for classes, decide on tuition and billing payment options, and learn about what documents you need to submit.
4. Learn what will transfer.
You can review your Transfer Course Report to see what’s going to transfer to Illinois. You can use our sample as a guide.
5. Decide on a housing option, either on or off campus.
As a transfer student, you may have the option to live in off-campus housing. If you have more than 30 graded credits hours or have lived in university housing at another institution for a year, you may be able to live in off-campus housing. You should consult with the Housing Information Office before signing a lease to ensure you meet the requirements to live off campus. If you want to live on campus, you can choose from University Housing or Private Certified Housing.
6. Remember to have your transcripts sent once you have completed the current semester.
We will need your grades from this fall, so make a mental note or mark it on your calendar to have your current institution send them once you have finished.
Okay, now you can begin packing!
