Every Tuesday at Northern Illinois University is a special day for students ready to complete their bachelorâs degrees at a four-year university.
Joining the âHuskie Nationâ comes complete with courses taught by world-class professors, opportunities for faculty-guided undergraduate research at a Carnegie-recognized institution as well as an instant connection to a nationally ranked graduate school.
âWe have so many great resources and programs to offer transfer students here at NIU, âsays Andrew Hlubek, associate director of admissions. âOur Transfer Tuesday events are great opportunities for students to meet face-to-face with our admissions counselors and take the next steps toward becoming a part of the Huskie family.â
Visitors also can take a tour of campus, view a transfer-specific presentation, meet one-on-one with transfer admission counselor and ask transfer-related questions.
Transfer Tuesdays at Northern Illinois University are held from 1:45 to 4:15 p.m. every Tuesday at the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center on the NIU campus in DeKalb.
During the events, NIU will waive the $40 application fee.
Though most information about the NIU experience is available online, Hlubek said a campus visit is the best way for students to get introduced to the university.
âTransfer Tuesdays are geared specifically toward transfer students so the focus is on transition,â Hlubek adds. âWe talk about issues that matter most to transfer students, from how to find out if courses transfer, where to find veterans services, housing options â you name it. We understand transition at NIU, and weâre here to answer studentsâ questions immediately.â
