EIU Office of Admissions

Notice Regarding COVID-19

As we resume on-campus visits, please be assured that your safety remains our highest priority.

Please note: in response to updated guidance from the CDC and the State of Illinois, EIU is revising its institutional indoors masking policy for our campus guests, staff, and students. While masks are not generally required, EIU's masking policy says that masks still must be worn in certain spaces, so if you visit campus, you may be asked to wear one. We will provide masks to those who don't bring their own.

Learn more about our response to coronavirus COVID-19 developments and find resources meant to support the health and wellness of our university community.

In the meantime, browse the group visit opportunities available below or take advantage of our virtual tour. Feel free to reach out to our Admissions counselors at 217-581-2224 or with any questions.

Virtual Group Visits

The Office of Admissions would like to offer high school and colleges the opportunity to connect with us virtually. An Admissions representative will set up a Zoom appointment for you and your students to learn more about EIU. We can provide a 45-minute virtual campus tour, a 15-minute presentation, and end with a Q & A session.
