International Applicant Admissions: Insider Tips


2014 hasn’t even begun, but we are already receiving applications for Fall 2014. International applicants have started early this year and applications are pouring in! Here are some helpful tips to help you avoid common mistakes in the process:

You can apply online now. You will complete the UIC Liautaud application, the UIC supplemental application, and pay the $60 application fee. Please note, when you are directed to the UIC supplemental application, create a new account log in since this is a different account. These three components are due by February 15, 2014.

It is important that your full name is consistent throughout the application, your application documents and on your submitted test scores.

If you have additional documents that need to be added to your application after it is submitted, please log back into your UIC Liautaud application to upload them, or email your documents as PDF attachments to us. Do not upload any documents to the UIC supplemental application. If you are emailing us documents, please include your full name and birth date to verify your information.

We are using a paperless process, so please DO NOT mail any hard copies to our office. All documents must be electronic copies or uploaded to your application.

Applicants have a one month grace period to submit all documents, which are due March 15, 2014.

You will only be asked to submit Official sealed documents to the University Office of Admissions once you are admitted, which most students submit them during their first semester.

You can check on your status and missing documents by logging back into your application. You only need to submit documents that are listed as “not received.” 

Join us on December 17, 2013, from 9 am-10 am, for our Webinar for International Applicants. Caroline La Torre, our Director of Recruiting and Enrollment, will present the UIC Liautaud programs offered, discuss admissions information and answer your questions during this live online event.
