SAVOY, Ill. (WCIA) — The University of Illinois-Willard Airport will host a TSA Pre✓® temporary enrollment event June 3 – 7. Appointments will be available from 8 am – noon and 1 – 5 pm. 

TSA Pre✓® is an expedited screening program which enables identified low-risk air travelers to enjoy a smart and more efficient screening experience. For TSA Pre✓® travelers, there is no need to remove shoes, 3-1-1 liquids, laptops, light outerwear, or belts. Currently, TSA Pre✓® has more than 450 lanes at 200+ U.S. airports, including CMI. 

To participate in the enrollment event, you will need to start an application for new enrollment followed by an in-person interview at Willard Airport. 

To participate in this local enrollment event, follow these steps to pre-enroll:

1. Click here to access the application page
2. Click “Start Application Now”, then click “New Enrollment”
3. Fill out Steps and choose “Next” at the bottom of each screen
4. Type in your location at Zipcode/City/Airport Code box
5. Choose location “Willard Airport” and click “Next”
6. Select your desired appointment time

To complete the application process, you will need to bring proof of identity and U.S. citizen documentation (such as a U.S. passport or a birth certificate and a driver’s license). If you have a valid U.S. passport, it’s all you need for ID!

The application process is completed at Willard Airport where enrollment specialists will capture fingerprints for a background check, verify your identity and collect the $85 application fee for five years of service. The fee can be paid by credit card, money order, company check or certified/cashier’s check. Cash and personal checks are not accepted.

As always, free two-hour parking is available. Walk-in appointments may be available on a first-come-first-serve basis, however, applicants with an appointment take precedence.
