Join students from across the state, nation and globe who come to U of I for an excellent education. If you are graduating from high school, or you have earned fewer than 14 transferable semester credits from an accredited university or college, we use a combination of your test scores and GPA to determine your eligibility for admission.

If you’re a transfer student with more than 14 transferable semester credits, your admissions eligibility is contingent on a 2.0 GPA (C average) from all college-level study attempted at accredited colleges. Some courses excluded. Other academic departments may have additional requirements.
