University and Gies Business Visit Options

We offer on-campus and virtual 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. 

First-Year Student Visits 

First-year students can participate in regular visit programs or larger Orange and Blue Day open houses. Both can include campus/Gies tours and a meeting with admissions staff. Learn more about these two options through the University Admissions first-year visit web page.

For regular visit programs, we recommend attending a morning University Admissions presentation and campus tour, and then joining us for a Gies information session and facility tour in the afternoon. Orange and Blue Days already have that scheduled format, so no worries there!
