Start at ZJU-UIUC in Fall 2020

We want you to make The Grainger College of Engineering your next home. However, we understand there are consulate backlogs caused by COVID-19 closures. If you are a Chinese citizen and worried about visa issues getting in the way of starting your Grainger Engineering experience, we have a viable option for you.

Start Fall Semester at ZJU-UIUC, located in Haining, China. As a first-time UIUC freshman, if you cannot travel to Urbana for the fall semester due to visa or travel restrictions, you have the opportunity to be a UIUC student studying at ZJU-UIUC in Fall 2020. This allows you to begin your Grainger Engineering studies even if you cannot make it to the Urbana campus this fall.
