UIS launches Transfer Express - one-stop enrollment for new transfers

The University of Illinois Springfield is making it easy for transfer students to enroll next fall. Transfer Express is a series of nine one-stop, one-day events, beginning on April 27 and running through August 20. Students from area community colleges, other universities, and those who never finished college, can get everything taken care of for fall 2012 classes – in a single day.

Transfer Express will be held on April 27 & 28, May 21, June 22 & 23, July 26 & 27, and August 18 & 20. Weekday sessions will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday sessions from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in University Hall, room 1031.

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 admissions@uis.edu.

No advance registration for Transfer Express is necessary. Students 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 have filed the 2012-2013 FAFSA (UIS school code 009333). Students must be applying for an on-campus program. Online programs are not eligible.
