UIS speeds up transfer process

The University of Illinois Springfield has scheduled a series of single-day events to make it easier for transfer students to register for fall classes.

Transfer Express is a series of nine one-stop events, beginning April 27 and running through Aug. 20. Students from area community colleges, other universities and those who never finished college and now want to return can get everything taken care of for fall 2012 classes in a single day.

UIS transfer coordinator Raymond Barnett said this is the first time UIS has tried this approach, although in the mid-1990s, smaller versions focused on promotion and helping students who needed to register.

“This is a much more accelerated approach to the transfer process,” he said.

Transfer Express will be held April 27-28, May 21, June 22-23, July 26-27 and Aug. 18 and 20. The weekday sessions will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday sessions from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in University Hall, room 1031.

Transfer Express was featured in an April 16, 2012, article in The State Journal-Register.
