The most reliable (some might say the only reliable) network on campus is At&t. You may use At&t directly or other virtual network operators that run on the At&t network. These tend to be more budget-friendly and include H20 Wireless and Cricket Wireless.
Please note: you have to pay for your mobile phone to remain active – not only for outgoing calls but also for incoming calls.Buy upfront or in installments: you can buy your phone upfront or pay a provider for it over time. Phones paid for to providers over time tend to be locked to only one network and tend to be more expensive in the long run.
Prepaid vs. contract: you can prepay for your phone services (calling, texting, and data) or you can get into a monthly contract. Prepaid options are more flexible since you’re not “indebted” to the provider.
Unlimited vs. “pay-as-you-go”: You may go for unlimited calling or texting or “pay-as-you-go” options that charge per text/minute. If your plan is not unlimited, charges per minute or text include incoming calls and texts.
Bank Account If you don’t have an account with a bank in the U.S. and would like to have one, we will have a session during Pre-orientation to guide you through the application process for a U.S. Bank checking account.
International Calling Besides WhatsApp, there are options for traditional calling through services such as Rebtel. H20 wireless plans also typically include some international minutes.
“Urgent” and “emergency” may communicate a similar message of an issue needing to be addressed “right away,” but there is a subtle difference. Urgent care centers or walk-in clinics are suitable for situations, such as an injury, that may require immediate attention but they are not severe enough to warrant emergency services. Emergency room (ER) services typically cost more and are best suited for severe circumstances.
What documents do I need in order to get a State ID?
There are two parts to acquiring a driver’s license in Illinois: a written test and a driving test. Once you have successfully completed the written test, you receive a driving permit that allows you to drive under the instruction of a licensed driver. A successful driving test is then required in order to become a licensed driver. Both the written test and the driving test can be done on the same day. Learn more.
Typically, to drive in the U.S. you are required to have a valid state-issued driver’s license.
