For full scholarship consideration, students should apply by December 15. Candidates who wish to be considered for the Illinois College Trustee Scholarship Program or who have been nominated for the Illinois College Heritage Scholarship Program must have a complete application on file by this date.
Admission applications and other merit scholarship consideration are reviewed on an ongoing basis as space in the class allows. Merit scholarships are awarded on the basis of a student’s overall academic performance, standardized testing results, and personal involvement in both school and community.
Illinois College operates a modified rolling admission process. Students may begin to submit their applications in the summer prior to their senior year in high school. Files will be reviewed beginning in late October with the first round of decisions being sent out in early November. From that date, decisions are mailed weekly.
