New freshman gather for sights and sounds

Congratulations, Class of 2023!

Congratulations to those who have been admitted to the University of Illinois, so far! You have worked hard for this moment and the future is only beginning from here. As you celebrate your achievements, there are still some things you have to consider before you join us on campus this fall.

1. Accept/Decline

Many of you have received emails regarding your acceptance to Illinois. But, it doesn’t stop there. If you choose Illinois as your future college (which, I mean, who wouldn’t?), you have to accept this admittance. If you haven’t done it already, take a quick detour and do it right now!

2. Housing

You can choose to live in University Housing or Private Certified Housing, depending on availability. You can fill out your contract online and via email you will receive a time stamp, which is when you can choose your residence hall. You can go ahead and find a roommate while you’re at it. Usually students resort to Facebook because it’s an easy interface to work with, but the university provides a survey that students can fill out regarding their habits and likes/dislikes.

3. Summer Registration

This is a one-day event where students come to campus to meet with academic advisors and register for their first fall semester of classes. If you live far away, don’t worry, you have the opportunity to register through online appointments!

4. Placement Exams

You can take placement exams up to two weeks before summer registration to see which level classes you can sign up for. Don’t stress, it’s not as bad as it sounds!

These are some of the next steps you can take to enroll in the best four years of your life! Check out the admissions website for more details on the admitted checklist.



Class of 2020
I'm majoring in Psychology, minoring in Spanish, and pursuing a pre-dental track. It seems like I’m all over the place, but that’s what I like about college! I get to choose to study what I’m interested in, and I’m happy to be doing just that at Illinois.
