Summer Registration/Orientation

During Summer New Student Registration you will be asked to watch a University welcome video, a College of LAS information video and attend a virtual Biology meeting, where you will learn specific information about the different biology majors.  After your Biology group meeting, you will meet one-on-one with an academic advisor to discuss what you have done in high school, what your long-term goals are and what you should take in your first semester on campus.

As a Biology student, it is imperative that you take the Chemistry and Math  (ALEKS) placement exams at least 1 week prior to your registration date.  Your advisor will use these results to suggest the appropriate courses for you in your first semester at Illinois.  If you need, or plan, to take any language courses other than English at Illinois, you should take those online placement tests as well. All placement tests are available via the Admitted Student Checklist.

Should you have questions regarding which placement tests to take, please call us at (217) 333-6774 or (217) 333-3046.  We look forward to working with you on creating your perfect schedule!

Parents and guests of incoming students are encouraged to read through this information handout for specifics on the registration process and answers to some frequently asked questions.  If you have additional questions after reading, please email parentroom@illinois.edu and someone will respond to your questions.  Si necesita hablar en Español, déjenos sabe y podemos proveer a alguien qu puede asistir.
