    Transfer Fridays

    In response to coronavirus (COVID-19) and with the health of guests and the Illinois State University community in mind, we have cancelled all campus visits through July 31. We apologize for any inconvenience, but hope you will come see us in the future. If you have any questions, please contact

    We get it. As a transfer student, you need different information than someone new to the college experience.

    That's why we offer our Transfer Friday, an event that presents information particularly relevant to you. You’ll leave prepared to make a smooth transition to Illinois State, and you'll understand why we have been named to the Phi Kappa Theta Transfer Honor Roll for four consecutive years.

    On a Transfer Friday, you will:

    • Learn more about the University, including the admission requirements
    • Understand how your credits can transfer
    • Learn about financial aid and scholarship opportunities
    • Discover available transition programs
    • Enjoy a complimentary meal in one of our dining centers
    • Experience campus and residence hall through student-led tours
    Please note, residence hall tours are not available December 7-13, May 2-8, or during the University's Thanksgiving break, winter break, or spring break. For the safety of our guests, campus tours will not be given when extreme weather conditions occur. A virtual tour option will be provided.


    Plan on 2.5 hours for the admissions presentation and tour.

    Additional options:

    If an individual with a disability needs an accommodation to participate, including but not limited to accessible parking, please contact the Office of Admissions at least two weeks in advance at (309) 438-2181 or (800) 366-2478.
