Admissions Code of Conduct
All University of Illinois admission policies are set with the approval of the campus Senates. Only faculty, college representatives designated by the dean, or admissions officers whose jobs involve direct responsibility for admissions will be involved in admissions decisions. Other faculty and more senior administrators will provide policy guidance and are available for consultation at the request of those involved in admissions decisions.
All employees involved in the enrollment process are required to follow this Admissions Code of Conduct, the University Code of Conduct, and other codes of conduct listed below. This includes employees who participate in any of the following activities: lead generation, recruiting activities, admissions processing through matriculation, financial aid determination and administration, and related practices. These employees are also expected to comply with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Additional codes of conduct and policies related to admissions and enrollment include:
All applicants to UIS are required to submit official transcripts from all of the institutions they have attended. Applicants who attended a high school, university, or college outside of the United States must have their credentials evaluated as part of their application.
Detailed information about the options for international credential evaluation may be found on the International Applicant Requirements website.

All admission offers are made on a conditional basis, and the offer can be rescinded at any point up to the first day of instruction of the admission term. Reasons for rescission of admission offers include, but are not limited to, the following:
Failing to submit your official academic records by set deadlines.
Negative changes in academic performance in courses listed as in-progress on the application for admission. For freshmen, this would likely be your senior year courses. For transfers, this would be any college courses ungraded at the time of your application.
Unapproved schedule changes in courses listed as in-progress on the application for admission. For transfers, this could include dropping courses required for admission.
Downward changes in level of rigor of your coursework listed as in-progress on your application for admission. For freshmen, this could include dropping advanced-level courses and replacing with regular-level courses or dropping college preparatory classes for electives.
The cancellation of the test score used in the decision to offer you admission.
Disciplinary action taken against you by an educational institution, including but not limited to suspension and expulsion, at any time following the submission of your application until your first scheduled day of instruction at UIS.
Failing to report disciplinary action taken against you by an educational institution at the time you accepted your admission offer, or if applicable, at any time following the submission of your application until your first scheduled day of instruction at Illinois. Failure to report such disciplinary action may also lead to disciplinary action if discovered after you have begun instruction at the university. This policy applied to all admits.
Failing to report any convictions of or pending charges for a criminal offense that have already occurred at the time you accepted your admission offer, or if applicable, at any time following the acceptance of your admission offer until your first scheduled day of instruction at Illinois. Failure to report such convictions or charges may also lead to disciplinary action if discovered after you have begun instruction at the university. See our Criminal History Policy and Frequently Asked Questions. This policy applies to all admits.
Withholding pertinent information requested on the application or giving false information, including failure to report all high school and/or collegiate credit.
Providing falsified documents as part of the application materials.
If any of these are discovered on or after the first day of instruction, dismissal can occur.
