To ensure the health and safety of our campus community, we ask that prospective students refrain from visiting us in person at this time. We're taking many measures to keep our students safe and help reduce the number of possible exposures. Therefore, any campus visitors won't have physical access to buildings, faculty, or staff. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time, and we look forward to hosting you in person once it's safe to do so!

Prospective students can still schedule a one-on-one virtual visit with a member of our MCB Instructional Program by calling (217)333-6774 or attend one of our Biology Prospective Student Virtual Group Meetings. Our staff is available to answer questions about the curriculum and career options for students in MCB. Prospective student visits are generally scheduled during normal university business hours and exclude university holidays and weekends.

To take a virtual tour of our campus visit Office of Undergraduate Admissions and scroll to the bottom of the page.

Thank you for your interest in our program. We hope to see you in Urbana soon!
