The admissions process for the University of Illinois' online courses varies according to where the course is based, whether the course is at the undergraduate or graduate level and whether a student wishes to enroll as a degree or non-degree student. For all online courses, students need to register with the online resource center for the campus where the course is being hosted.
Begin the admissions process by choosing between the Urbana-Champaign, Chicago or Springfield campuses. Links to the website of each campus can be found at the University of Illinois online catalogue page (http://www.online.uillinois.edu/admissions/index.asp).
Next, students need to decide if they want to enroll as degree-seeking students or a non degree-seeking students. If students are not currently enrolled in campus-based University of Illinois undergraduate or graduate degree programs, then they must apply as non degree-seeking students.
Before enrolling in any classes, students should review the online course offerings. Non-degree students may enroll in up to three online courses at once. Next, students have to verify that they have met any prerequisite requirements for the courses they want to take. To officially enroll, students should create a username and password on the website for whichever campus is hosting the course. Students will then agree to the registration agreements, submit their personal information and provide two email addresses. They are then be able to register for courses.
