Trip to University of Illinois

Transfer services took six ECC students to University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign today for a talk by Admissions representative Ms. Casey McFadden and a cold but sunny tour of the campus by a student guide. Our students got to see a typical day on campus, classes in progress, and a dorm room and residence hall. Ms. McFadden told us the application period for fall admissions runs from late August through March 1st, but she recommends students apply in December/January after your fall semester grades are recorded.  She also reminded us that admission to the Colleges of Business and Engineering are very competitive and just having the minimum GPA required is often not enough to actually be accepted. She further cautioned business majors to plan carefully because courses required for the business major must be completed the spring semester (not summer) before you transfer.  The College of Business only admits transfer students in fall.  More information can be found at
