EIU New Student and Family Programs

Transfer Student - Summer Admit

We are so excited to have you join our EIU family!

Your success at Eastern Illinois University is determined not only by the quality of your academic work, but also by how quickly you connect to the campus. EIU requires you to participate in orientation and transition programs to assist you in your transition. These programs are part of our two-part process to becoming an official EIU student.

Part 1: Orientation, Advisement & Registration

You will attend our Orientation, Advisement & Registration program to accomplish a number of important tasks including:

  • Learn about academic degree requirements (specific majors require mandatory testing)
  • Meet with your academic advisor to help develop an academic plan
  • Use P.A.W.S. to register for your classes
  • Learn the ropes from current students
  • Become more familiar with campus facilities
  • Learn about campus support services and programs
  • Get your Panther Card (student ID)
  • Meet new classmates and get answers to your questions regarding life at EIU

Coming to college opens a new chapter in your life. This transition also raises a number of questions and concerns regarding your first year here at Eastern Illinois University. We promise your orientation day will provide you with more than a class schedule; it will prepare and excite you for your time at EIU!

Registering for a program

Transfer students will be e-mailed an invitation to the program. The invitation will contain a program reservation link to myEIU. Students will need to complete the reservation form online to secure a program date.
