Degree-Seeking Students

Undergraduate and Graduate campus-based, online, or off-campus degree students

Enrollment Policy

If you have been accepted into a graduate or undergraduate campus-based, online, or off-campus degree program at Illinois, you will use the Student Self-Service website to enroll in courses, to view and update personal information, to access academic history and grades, make payments and order transcripts. 

When you enroll in a class you agree, confirm and understand the following terms:

  • You agree to pay tuition and fees to the University according to the payment policies and schedules adopted by the Board of Trustees.
  • Unauthorized use of University of Illinois computer systems, data, or resources; unauthorized use of another individual's identification, account, or password; or an attempt to gain unauthorized access is prohibited by University policy and may constitute a violation of Illinois state law.
  • Access to UI-Integrate Self-Service will be terminated if you are found to be making excessive unsuccessful registration attempts.

Enrollment in fall, spring, summer, and winter online classes is open to both undergraduate and graduate degree-seeking students. However, degree-seeking students have some special rules that are applicable to them.

  • If you are a degree-seeking student, you cannot drop your last course section via the Self-Service System. To drop the last course section, you must cancel all course enrollments (prior to the 1st day of class) or withdraw from campus (after the 1st day of class). Note: The main registration menu on the Student Self-Service System contains a “Withdraw from Term/Cancel Registration” link.
  • Students ONLY enrolling in course sections through the Center for Innovation in Teaching and Learning do not have the option to opt-in for University Student Health Insurance.

Enrollment Requirements & Prerequisites: Wednesday, July 10, 2013 3:14:00 PM

Many courses carry prerequisites and other enrollment requirements (for example, “instructor approval,” “departmental approval”, “enrollment limited to majors,” “seniors only,” or “honor students”). These requirements are listed with each course and many are computer controlled.  Students are expected to comply with these prerequisites and enrollment requirements. Failure to do so may result in your being removed from the course. Should you have questions regarding these requirements, please contact the teaching department.

Academic Policy

  • Transfer credit and the Graduate College application: the “12-Hour Rule”

Degree-seeking students: With departmental approval, you may petition to transfer for degree credit up to, but no more than 12 semester hours of course work. This course work must have earned grades of A or B and have been completed no more than five years prior to your admission to the Graduate College.  Admission into a graduate program is required in order to be eligible for a degree and some programs require admission prior to registration for the first course. If you have questions about transfer credit, please contact your department
