University Admissions and Gies Business Visit Options

Starting September 7, 2021, you can visit UIUC and Gies Business in person or online!

We offer visit programs for prospective first-year and off-campus transfer students. High school seniors who were admitted into another major/program on campus and current UIUC students can visit our intercollegiate transfer (ICT) information page to learn more about the transfer process. 

As we offer in-person campus meetings on a limited basis, we encourage any non-seniors to explore our virtual resources instead of registering for a campus visit. This consideration will allow more space for 2022 graduates who are working on a more condensed timeline in their college search. Your understanding is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to expanding campus visit access as soon as possible.

In-Person Campus Visits 

You can create your own itinerary to get the most out of your campus visit! We recommend scheduling a University Admissions information session/campus tour along with a Gies Business meeting. This will help you understand the admissions process and all UIUC and Gies has to offer.

Gies meetings are held on most Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday afternoons for first-year students, and on select Friday mornings for transfer students.

Peer-to-Peer Chats


Prospective students can make an appointment to talk one-on-one with a current Gies student about academics, housing, student life, internships, or whatever else you like! These conversations will allow you to see a clearer picture of life as a Gies Illini.
