UIS makes enrollment easier for transfer students with one-stop "Transfer Express" events

The University of Illinois Springfield is making it easy for transfer students to enroll next fall. Transfer Express is a series of five one-stop, one-day events, beginning on April 27, 2013 and running through August 17, 2013. Students from area community colleges, other universities, and those who never finished college, can get everything taken care of for Fall 2013 classes – in a single day.

Transfer Express will have its first session on April 27 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Admissions Office in University Hall (UHB). Other dates for Transfer Express are June 22 (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.), July 18 (3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.), August 8 (3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.), and August 17 (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.).

Prospective transfer students should bring their official sealed transcripts and application fee to the sessions. Students can talk to an advisor about transferring credits, fill out an application, be admitted, secure financial aid, and even register for classes before leaving. Veterans and other students seeking application fee waivers are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office prior to arrival at 217/206-4847 or

No advance registration for Transfer Express is necessary. Students expecting to be admitted should have a 2.00 cumulative transfer GPA on a 4.0 scale, have 30 transfer hours by entry to UIS in the fall, and if they are seeking financial aid they should have filed the 2013-2014 FAFSA (UIS school code 009333). Students must be applying for an on-campus program. Online programs are not eligible.

Questions may be directed to the UIS Office of Admissions at 217/206-4847 or to Transfer Coordinator Raymond Barnett at
