Future Bearcats



You’ve been admitted to McKendree University and we’re ready for you to join the Bearcat family. This checklist will provide you with everything you need to finalize your enrollment plans and ensure that you have a smooth transition to McKendree University. 







We believe that visiting campus is the most essential step in making your college decision so check out our visit opportunities! From group Preview Days to personalized individual visits, we offer a variety of ways for you to experience McKendree. Before making your final decision, it's our recommendation that you spend as much time on campus as needed -- meet with a professor or coach, sit in on a class, stay overnight, or eat in the dining hall.

Once you've visited, compare your choices, make a list of positives and negatives, and ask questions. Gather all the information you can and trust your gut feeling; usually you can feel if a school is right for you when you walk across campus.
