ISU On-the-Spot Admissions

Looking to transfer to Illinois State University from Heartland Community College?

Starting September 1, you can enroll for ISU’s summer or fall 2015 classes online at www.admissions.ilstu.edu/apply.

Speak with an ISU Rep on September 10

Representatives from ISU's Office of Admissions will be on Heartland's campus Wednesday, September 10. ISU reps will provide transfer information and On-the-Spot Admissions for those interested in starting at ISU in the summer or fall of 2015. This opportunity is open to students who still need to apply to ISU or who are awaiting a decision regarding their current application.*

Make an Appointment by September 5

To speak to an ISU rep or participate in On-the-Spot Admissions, make an appointment at Advisement (room 1000 in CCB) or by calling 309-268-8033. Appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis until 5 p.m. Friday, September 5.

Prepare for Your Appointment (On-the Spot-Admissions only)

Prior to your scheduled on-the spot-admissions session, complete the following steps:

  • Submit an application and $40 fee online at www.admissions.ilstu.edu/apply no later than September 5. Once submitted, print the application and bring a copy to your appointment.
  • Obtain and bring copies of your official transcripts from all that apply (allow enough time for processing):
    • Heartland
    • Previous college or university attended
  • If you have less than 24 semester hours of college credit earned, get a copy of your high school transcripts and ACT/SAT scores. Provide those at your appointment.
  • Meet all admission requirements (http://admissions.illinoisstate.edu/transfer/apply/requirements.php).

Can’t make it? ISU will also be on campus in October, November and December. Be on the lookout for updated dates and times or stop by Advisement.

*Admission decisions are made based on thorough evaluation of all application materials and transcripts. Please note, in some cases, On-the-Spot Admission may not be possible.
