While attending Preview, students will have the opportunity to meet with their academic advisor, register for classes, meet current Illinois State students and their future classmates, interact with faculty and staff from various academic departments, and receive their Redbird ID card.
In addition, students will have the chance to discover the various opportunities provided at Illinois State including involvement in student organizations, volunteer opportunities, support services, and many other aspects of being a Redbird.
As a new Illinois State University student, help to support our culture of civic engagement by donating a school supply item to elementary school students in the Bloomington-Normal community. If participation is feasible for you and your family, bring a new school supply item with you to Preview; items will be collected at check in.
Incoming transfer students to Illinois State take part in our Transfer Day Program.
