*This is the only time freshmen who started at the University of Illinois in the Fall of 2011 can apply to transfer into the College of Business.
Criteria for Admission: All transfer students will be reviewed holistically using the same criteria used to evaluate freshman applicants. Personal and professional essays as well as demonstrated leadership (both at UIUC and high school) will be evaluated in addition to academic performance in courses taken at UIUC and completion of the required courses. Please note that campus involvement is an important component of the admission criteria.
