You’re Admitted! Now What?

Join The Admitted Student Facebook Group

The Official Bradley University Class of 2025 Facebook group has a variety of current Bradley students of all majors, grade levels, and backgrounds! On the Facebook group, you’ll find current students talking about their Bradley experience, sharing what their clubs and organizations are up to, and answering any questions you might have. You’ll also be able to meet your fellow #BradleyBound classmates! This is a great way to get excited about your time on The Hilltop!

Visit Us And Ask Questions

You can visit us both virtually and in person. During each semester, we host several virtual visit days that give you access to Bradley from the comfort of your couch. Keep an eye on our Virtual Admission Events page to see when our next virtual visit day is! We also host daily visits where you’ll receive a personal, masked, and socially distanced tour from a current Bradley student. Whichever visit day option you choose, use this opportunity to ask all of the questions that are important to you.

Take A #BradleyBound Selfie!

What better way to let your friends and family know you’re #BradleyBound than with a selfie? And who knows, you might even get a like or a retweet from the Bradley University Undergraduate Admission social media accounts!

File Your FAFSA

Filing the FAFSA will show you if you qualify for FREE MONEY (grants) and federal student loans. Did you know the federal government, states, AND colleges and universities can all offer grants to students who qualify?

The Search For A Roommate

To go random, or not to go random? That is the question! While lots of students are okay with being assigned a roommate, there are a few places you can find one if that’s not the route you want to take. First, check out the Official Class of 2025 Facebook group! Here, you’ll be able to post a brief introduction about yourself and meet people who have similar interests! Another option is meeting your future roommate at Summer Orientation! Both are great options for finding your roommate and maybe in the process, a best friend!

Select Your Housing Preferences

After you’ve paid your deposit, you can rank which dorms you’d prefer to live in during the school year. Not sure which residence hall you want to live in? Check out the Bradley University Undergraduate Admission Facebook page for video tours of all the dorms on campus, then visit the Residential Living page on Bradley’s website to get more details (like room dimensions)! One more tip: You can resubmit the housing form as many times as you want if your housing preferences change, or if you find the perfect roommate!

Select Your Dates For Summer Orientation

Orientation is three days full of fun, learning about campus, and making friends (plus you get to pick your first semester of classes)! While three days may sound like a lot, we think it’s the perfect amount of time to get to know your new home and prepare you for the upcoming fall semester!
