As a transfer student, you’re an important part of our campus community. We want you to start your transfer on the right track. You probably have a lot of questions about your next steps. Review your transfer acceptance packet (for fall or for spring) and use the links below to find out what to do before classes begin.
Admission messages will continue to arrive through your preferred email address. However, announcements and updates from University Housing Services, Financial Aid, Student Accounts, Office of the Registrar, and others will arrive through your Redbird email account. Your Redbird email address is your ULID@ilstu.edu and your password is the same password you created when you applied for admission.
To access your Illinois State University email:

Before you complete your transfer and start studying at Illinois State, you must send us some official documents.
Each semester, admitted transfer students participate in a Transfer Day Program. It’s a special opportunity to meet your advisor, register for classes, get your Redbird ID card, and see the campus, all during the semester before you attend.
