Vehicle Registration

All vehicles must be registered and require a MacMurray College parking sticker ($50 fee per semester). To register a vehicle, visit Student Life and provide the license plate number and vehicle make, year, and model.

Health Services

Up-to-date physical forms and immunization records are required to register. Contact Student Life at 217-479-7123 if you have not or think you may not have submitted the mandatory forms. Students are strongly encouraged to complete this ahead of time to avoid registration holds.

Financial Aid and Student Account

All financial aid forms must be complete prior to the first day of classes. Payment in full or a satisfactory payment arrangement must be in place prior to move-in or the first day of classes. Failure to attend a class or classes, even without official withdrawal, may increase a student's financial obligation through loss of financial aid.


Students who would like to charge books in the MacMurray Bookstore using excess financial aid, payment plans, or another arrangement may do so January 13 through February 1.
