Indictment or Conviction of a Crime

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign 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 of 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 Turner Student Services Building, 610 East John Street, Champaign, Illinois 61820 USA. Applicants are responsible for verifying receipt by the University and for maintaining a copy of the receipt certifying submission. Information to be submitted includes a brief explanation, location (city, state, country) of conviction or current indictment, dates, and court disposition, in English. This statement must 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.
