Transfer Students

There are two ways to transfer into the Illinois College of Business. If you are a current University of Illinois student, you will follow the guidelines for the Inter-College Transfer. If you are coming from another educational institution, you will need to follow the guidelines for Off-Campus Transfer.

Inter-College Transfer

For students who are current freshmen at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Inter-College Transfer (ICT) application is the process needed for potential admission to the Illinois College of Business. See more >

 

Off-Campus Transfer

For students who are not currently enrolled at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and attend another University or Institution, the Off-Campus Transfer (OCT) application is the process needed for potential admission to the Illinois College of Business.

If you know that you want to attend the Illinois College of Business, we strongly recommend that you apply as a high school student. Transfers from other institutions are possible, but because of space limitations, the admissions process is far more competitive for Off-Campus Transfers.

In order to be eligible for Off-Campus Transfer, you must have:

  • completed (or in progress) 30-75 hours of transferable credits
  • completed your institution’s equivalent course for each of the following University of Illinois courses (check transfer.org for equivalencies):

    • Option 2:

  • [only students who have completed over 50 credit hours] completed equivalents of the following courses:
    • Accy 201
    • Accy 202
    • CS105 or ACE 161

If your current institution does not offer one or more of the required courses, please attach a letter with your application explaining your situation.

Admissions Criteria
In our Off-Campus Transfer students, we look for leaders who have made a significant contribution to their communities and will continue to do so. The right candidates will have a strong academic record, prominent leadership skills, exceptional communication skills, diverse interests and perspectives, and an eagerness to participate.
We read every application on a holistic basis. Each portion of the application is considered individually and in conjunction with the other portions. No single factor determines your admission status.

Application Dates
The Off-Campus Transfer application is available from September 1 to March 1 of any given admission year. Click here to apply for an off-campus transfer.
