Eastern Illinois University 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, EIU is temporarily revising its institutional indoors masking policy for our campus guests, staff, and students. With this change, all EIU students, employees, and campus guests – including those who are fully vaccinated – will be required to wear masks indoors while they are inside any buildings on campus. Our outdoor masking policy remains the same: masks are required outdoors for unvaccinated individuals.

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 future events that are open for registration 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.
