    Admitted Student Visits allow you to experience Illinois State within a small group setting, making it easy to have your questions answered by an admissions counselor and your student tour guide.

    Please note: Admitted Student Visits through the Office of Admissions are not the same as Preview orientation. If you are looking to register for Preview orientation, please visit for details.

    During an Admitted Student Visit, you will:

    • Learn more about the University, including next steps to enrollment
    • Experience campus during a student-led tour
    • Tour one of our residence hall rooms
