Admission Tips from an Insider!

As the Domestic Spring 2015 application deadline approaches, I would like to share some tips that will help you with the application process.

The Spring 2015 application deadline for domestic applicants is November 1, 2014. You can complete the online application now. Our application consists of the Apply Yourself application, the UIC Supplemental application, and the $60 application fee. Please note, when you are directed to the UIC Supplemental application, you will have to create a new user account since this is a different system. You must submit both applications, and the fee, for your application to be considered complete.

After you submit your application, you can log back in to your Apply Yourself application at any time to upload additional documents, and to check your status. You only need to submit documents that are listed as “not received.” Applicants have a one month grace period to upload test scores and documents, which are due December 1, 2014.

Our application process is paperless, so applicants must use the upload buttons in the application to submit their documents electronically. Please do not mail or fax copies of transcripts or academic records to our office. You will only be asked to submit Official sealed transcripts to the University Office of Admissions once you are admitted. Most students submit these during their first semester on campus.

If you haven’t already attended an Information Session, I would like to invite you to join us at our next one, on Wednesday, October 15 at 6PM in the Innovation Center. Our Assistant Dean, Mary Clark, and our Assistant Director of Admissions, Colette Armes, will present the programs we offer, discuss admissions information, and answer your questions. We will also have current students on hand to offer their perspective and answer your questions about the programs.


Please feel free to email me if you have any questions. I look forward to working with you!
