Admitted Visit Options

Congratulations on your offer of admission! Here at Illinois, we’re excited to show you our campus and give you a feel of the Illini pride that is always on display.

In order to really understand any campus, it’s great if you can visit. For students who have been offered admission, we have specific options for you. You don’t have to accept your offer in order to sign up.

Admitted Daily Visits

Admitted Daily Visits are held most mornings at 10:00 a.m. at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center. You’ll hear an admissions presentation, which gives you more information about Illinois as well as your next steps toward enrollment. You’ll then have an opportunity to ask questions to a student life panel and take a 90-minute walking tour of the campus, including a room in a residence hall. Our Admitted Daily Visits also include the following select Saturdays: March 28, April 11, and April 18. Note that on weekends, you won’t be able to meet with your academic units. 

You can sign up for an Admitted Daily Visit on our website. When you do, you’ll see that many of colleges allow you to meet with the major you’ve been admitted too. Simply check the box if you’d like to attend that meeting. If your particular major isn’t listed, we’ll do our best to set up an academic meeting with them. You’ll also have time to sit in on a class in the afternoon.

Illini Days

Illini Days are day-long events that are jam-packed with all of the information you’ll need to get your career as an Illini started off right! 

The day begins with a Resources Fair, with the opportunity to talk to Research Park, Study Abroad, Housing, and many other units about the opportunities here at Illinois. A quick tip: This fair is only offered until 9:30 a.m., so plan to get here a little early to attend. Our admissions presentation will then guide you through your next steps as an admitted student and provide more information about Illinois. Other options offered throughout the day include campus tours, housing tours, presentations by Housing and Financial Aid, and a variety of other activities. 

One of the most exciting parts of this visit is meeting with the college you were admitted to. We’ll even walk you to that meeting! When you sign up for your visit, make sure your college is available on the day you’d like to attend. If your college isn’t available, you won’t be able to meet with them on this particular day and might want to consider signing up for a different day.

You can also sign up for an Illini Day on our website. These days are a great way to meet future classmates in your own major!

What If I Can’t Visit?

We understand that it’s not always possible to visit campus. If you can’t make it to Illinois, we have virtual tour options online so you can see what we are all about. If you come to campus on a day that Admissions is not offering a program, you can also use our self-guided tours to see campus.

Always remember that we’re here to answer any questions you have about visiting campus as an admitted student! By attending any of our admitted programs, you’ll really learn what your future will be like as an Illini!
