Both our incoming freshmen and our off-campus transfer students apply through the University of Illinois Admissions website. The admissions website also has information on how applications are reviewed, how credit is transferred, and more.
Both on-campus and online graduate students apply through the University of Illinois Graduate College. If you are a working professional concerned about how taking online courses can fit into your busy life, we suggest enrolling in a course as a non-degree-seeking student. To officially obtain a Master's degree though, you must go through the Graduate College application process.
