EIU New Student and Family Programs

Freshman - Spring 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

Coming to college opens a new chapter in your life. The transition from high school to the university setting is an exciting time filled with a myriad of opportunities. 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 first year at EIU.

Registering for a program

Once you have paid your New Student  Enrollment Deposit of $150, you can sign up for an Orientation date through myEIU. Freshman 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.
