What is Summer Registration, and how should you prepare for it?

Summer Registration is one of the most exciting days during the summer for our future Illini. You will have the chance to register for your fall courses, meet your future classmates, take your i-card photo, and more! But before you come to campus, there are a few things that you need to do. I’ll walk you through them here.

Sign up for a Summer Registration date.

You can do this through your Admitted Student Checklist on your myIllini account. Be sure to pick a date that works for you and any guests (you are able to bring up to two) that you will be coming with you. If you don’t see any dates that work with your schedule, you’re welcome to submit the Conflict Form, which can be found in the Summer Registration Portal.

Complete your college registration homework and placement tests.

Your college registration homework and placement tests will become available in early April and May, respectively. Both must be completed at least two weeks prior to your Summer Registration appointment. When we say homework, it’s not actual homework. It’s just a way for your academic advisor to get to know you a little better before your advising appointment. You can read more on which placement tests you will be required to take here.

Send your AP and IB exam scores.

Be sure to have your test scores sent directly from the testing agency. AP scores should be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, and IB scores should be sent to Measurement and Evaluation.

Check the weather.

You’ll be walking around campus for a good portion of the day, so be sure to dress appropriately and comfortably.

Attend Summer Registration!

Lunch will be provided for the student and one guest. Additional guests will have the opportunity to purchase lunch tickets. Lunch will be served in one of our most popular dining halls, Ikenberry! Please note that we do ask that students and their guests plan to be on campus from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

If you have any additional questions, feel free to check out our Summer Registration website and FAQ.

After Summer Registration, you’re one step closer to becoming an Illini! Hats off to you!
