Graduates at commencement.


Your Redbird experience starts long before your graduation from Illinois State so we invite students to make the most of their college years! The Alumni Association and Alumni Engagement office work with various units on campus and alumni networks to provide opportunities to connect you with ISU traditions, resources, organizations such as the Student Alumni Council and link with over 235,000 Redbirds across the globe!

  • Scholarships

    The Alumni Association and the groups that work in conjunction with the Association provide scholarship opportunities for current and future students of Illinois State University. Application criteria and deadlines vary.

  • Redbird Legacy

    A legacy is a student or alumnus/a who has a parent, guardian, grandparent, or sibling who is an Illinois State graduate. Special events and opportunities are available for students considered a Redbird Legacy!

Student Alumni Council

Being a member of SAC enhances the college experience by providing opportunities for leadership, friendship, and involvement in the workings of the University—all assets upon graduation.
