Complete transfer applications are those files which contain:
*If you cannot attend the initial semester for which you applied, we will hold your official transcripts and other documents for one year from the date of receipt of these documents.
Applicants who wish to change their initial semester of application to another NIU semester within the same calendar year must submit a new application but do not need to submit another application fee. If you wish to attend NIU for a semester in a future new calendar year, then you will need to submit a new application and a new fee payment for that application.
Paper applications require significantly longer processing time to reach an admission decision.
The application fee is $40.00, payable by check or money order only, when using the paper application. Mail your completed and signed paper application with a check or money order made out to "NIU" for the $40.00 application fee, to: Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Northern Illinois University, 1425 West Lincoln Highway, DeKalb, IL 60115
