Students who want to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign soon will be able to apply online.
URBANA — Students applying to get into the University of Illinois' Urbana-Champaign campus will be able to apply online next year. But they won't be using an online process that allows students to apply to many colleges with one application.
The News-Gazette in Champaign reported that the university is developing its own online application for the Urbana-Champaign and Springfield campuses. Students applying to the Chicago campus can already use the Common Application Consortium that also covers more than 450 schools.
A university committee has decided that the $500,000 annual cost of the Common Application Consortium to the university's flagship campus outweighed its benefits. The university says an in-house system, which it hopes to have ready by the fall, will cost about $50,000 a year.
The Springfield campus has an online application system. It also doesn't use the Common Application Consortium.
