Welcome to the Redbird Family

The Transfer Day Program is a one-day orientation for transfer students who have been admitted to Illinois State University. You will meet with an academic advisor, register for classes, and obtain a Redbird ID card during the program. Our goal is to provide you with an easy transition to Illinois State.
