Policies & Important Information

Student health insurance

Students only enrolling in course sections through CITL do not have the option to opt-in for University Student Health Insurance.

FERPA rights

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, commonly known as FERPA, is a federal law that governs educational records. It grants specific rights to students and regulates how institutions must handle educational record, including grades. The main focus of FERPA is to give students rights to see their records and to protect against disclosures of certain information without the student’s consent or specific legal authorization. More information regarding FERPA.

This message serves as your annual FERPA notification as required by law.

Military support

The campus' Veterans Resources office provides advising and advocacy to students who are veterans. Financial aid benefits may apply. Veterans may use (subject to student eligibility of benefits) Federal and State Veteran Benefit Programs for semester-based online and site-based courses.

Criminal record disclosure

The University of Illinois is committed to maintaining a safe environment for all members of the University community. As part of this commitment, the University requires applicants who are under current indictment or have been convicted of a crime (other than a routine traffic offense or in a juvenile proceeding) to disclose this information as a mandatory step in the application process. A previous conviction or current indictment does not automatically bar admission to the University, but does require review. Complete information must be sent by certified mail at the time of application for admission to: Review Committee, 300 Student Services Building, University of Illinois, 610 East John Street, Champaign, IL 61820.

Applicants are responsible for verifying receipt by the University and for maintaining a copy of the receipt certifying submission. Information to be submitted, in English, includes: a brief explanation, location (city, state, country) of conviction or current indictment, dates, and court disposition. This statement must also include a grant of permission to the University for complete access to criminal records, if any. For further information on this requirement, call 217-333-0050.
