Welcome, Urbana University Class of 2020!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Urbana University!

As a member of this year’s class, you join other high-achieving students who bring unique perspective and new talents to enrich our campus community. You should be proud of your hard work and accomplishments – but this is just the beginning of an exciting journey.  

What’s next?

  • As you are making your final decision, we encourage you to visit campus and take a closer look at what the University has to offer. Destination UU are exclusive visit opportunities for accepted students.
  • Ensure that you’ve completed the FAFSA and have listed Urbana University (code: 003133) on your FAFSA submission to ensure that the Admissions team receives your information.  
  • Review your Financial Aid Award letter carefully. If you have any questions, contact the Financial Aid Office.
  • Once you have your Acceptance Letter and your Financial Aid Award letter, it’s time to decide if the Knight life is for you.   
  • Mark your calendar for May 1. Committing to Urbana early is a smart decision. Sending in your enrollment and housing deposit guarantees you a spot in the class and establishes your priority in the housing assignment process. Stay on track with this handy checklist.  

Remember: Our Admissions team is here to help. Feel free to contact your admissions counselor at any time to answer any last minute questions. We look forward to seeing you in the fall!

Destination UU: An Exclusive Visit Opportunity for Accepted Students

You can’t afford to miss Destination UU! You’ll meet our president, experience a UU class with faculty from a variety of majors, and get the real scoop on UU from a current student. Bring your parents along for a parents-only session that focuses on the resources that are in place to support you. As an accepted student making your college choice, it’s time to look at things with a new perspective, ask tough questions and find out if UU is right place for you.

Choose the Destination UU date that works best for you and reserve your spot!  

Why Choose Urbana?

With nearly 30 majors, you’ll get personalized attention from expert faculty members who are dedicated to your academic success and personal development,  from your first year experience to graduation.

Whether you’re following in the footsteps of older siblings or you’re the first in your family to attend college, Urbana provides a support system that keeps you on track. From top-notch library resources and mentoring opportunities to the student success center and advising, we’ve got it all at Urbana. 

Getting involved enhances the college experience, and as a Blue Knight, you’ll have hundreds of opportunities available to you. From student organizations and clubs to recreational activities and community service, you’ll find the right fit for you! 

Bridging the gap between academics and student life is NCAA division II athletics – and whether you decide to don a Blue Knights uniform yourself or join Knitro and fellow students and cheer on the team, you’ll feel like part of the family. 

Once again, congratulations on your acceptance!  Welcome Weekend will be here soon. Until then learn more about the City of Urbana, and reach out to your admissions counselor if you have any questions.
