Housing Fee

Choose to live on campus in a university-owned residence hall or apartment. If you will start with at least junior standing (56 credit hours), consider one of these off-campus options: St. James Apartments or Main Street Commons.

If you’re interested in living on campus with other transfer students, you can select the transfer specific floor when you complete your housing sign-up form using the Bradley Bound Page linked below.

Financial Aid

If you have not already done so, file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible to ensure you receive full consideration for federal, State of Illinois and Bradley University financial assistance. Use the link below to access the FAFSA website.

Soon after receiving your FAFSA information from the U.S. Department of Education, Bradley will send you a notification email regarding your eligibility for financial assistance. That communication will direct you to a secure website detailing the scholarships, grants, loans and work opportunities that have been awarded to you.



After submitting your enrollment fee, activate your BUnetID. Activation details can be found on your Bradley Bound Page. Your BUnetID is your user name that uniquely identifies you to campus systems so that you may access Bradley network resources such as electronic mail and course registration.


Dean’s Letter of Recommendation

Upon confirming your enrollment, you will be emailed a Dean's Letter of Recommendation form to verify you are a student in good standing at your last enrolled institution. This form, available at the link below, must be completed by the Dean of Students or the equivalent office at the college that you have most recently attended. Bradley’s Vice President of Student Affairs must receive this recommendation before you may register for classes.

Dean Recommendation


Registration for Fall semester begins in April and continues until the beginning of the semester. Spring registration begins in November.

Final Transcript

Make sure you have requested a final transcript from your previous college or university and that it has been received by Bradley’s Office of Admission. It is vital you submit your final transcript to complete your records. Without it, you will not be allowed to register for your next semester classes.


Health Form

Obtain proof of immunizations from your physician and complete your Health Form, which is required for all students who enroll in an Illinois college or university. The form may be turned in at Orientation or by the first day of classes.
