Virtual appointments available at many offices

July 28, 2020

Virtual appointments now are available at many campus offices. When possible, students and families should use this service instead of going into offices.


Advising drop-in office hours are from 2-4 p.m. each weekday via Zoom.

Students will be sent to a "waiting room" until an academic or career advisor is available to meet with them. 

Business Office 

To set up a virtual appointment, email or call 309-794-7390 or 309-794-7454.

Students can ask questions and learn about their accounts, billing dates, online bill pay, tuition and fees, refunds, insurance and other topics.


CORE Commons will be staffed from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. weekdays either by a person or via Google Hangouts live stream. 

All appointments will be virtual. Student appointments can be scheduled with each department through Handshake,

Students who come in person for scheduled appointments or drop-in office hours will be directed to use a virtual appointment room in Olin 108 (room 1) and Olin 110 (room 2).
