The completed application and all supporting documents must be on file in the Office of Admissions by the dates listed below. However, early application is strongly recommended. See deadline considerations.
If you currently attend a participating community college, you could be eligible for the Guaranteed Admission Program. Be sure to complete the participation format least one year before your first semester at NIU.
It usually takes us about two weeks to make an admission decision once a file is complete with supporting documents. Be sure to check the status of your application in MyNIU to see if anything is missing. Submit any missing items as soon as possible.
