On behalf of the Office of New Student Programs at Illinois, we welcome you to our campus and community. We are so excited that you chose Illinois and look forward to assisting you through this transition.

Transferring from another institution to the University of Illinois is unique for each transfer student. Therefore, our office has created special orientation sessions and other programs just for our new transfer students.
