Application Filing Periods
Illinois State's preferred filing period for freshman students for the fall 2013 semester is September 1 – November 15. Applying early is encouraged, as the University must limit enrollment due to space at the University and in specific majors/programs.
For best consideration for scholarships and to receive your admission decision by December 31, apply for admission and submit all required documents during the preferred filing period—September 1-November 15. Students who apply and submit all necessary transcripts and test scores between November 16 and March 1 will be notified of an admission decision by April 1.
Applications are considered incomplete until all required documents, including official transcripts and test scores, have been received. Incomplete applications will not be processed.
