CIC Traveling Scholars Program
CIC has decided to no longer allow guest institutions to participate in CIC activities. UIC had been a guest (UIUC is a member) since the 1980s. Due to this, UIC students can non longer participate in the CIC Travleing Scholars Program.
The UIC Graduate College has formed an agreement with Northwestern University and the University of Chicago to continue what is, in effect, the Traveling Scholars Program between the three campuses.
In addition, UIC students may take courses at the other University of Illinois campuses througha process called concurrent registration. UIC students who would like to take a class at the Univerisity of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign or the University of Illinois at Springfield may use concurrent registration. Consult with the Registrar's Office at UIC for procedures and approvals.
Effective Fall 2011, the Chicago Metropolitan Exchange Program is in effect. This program is an agreement between Northwestern University, the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago to allow graduate students in a doctoral program, or in a participating training program that is jointly supported by the Exchange Scholar’s home and host institutions, to enroll at one of the three participating institutions to take advantage of academic courses at any of the other participating institutions that are not available at their home institution.
As the vast majority of CIC Traveling Scholars from and to UIC involved the instituions listed above, the combination of the Chicago Metropolitan Exchange Program and concurrent registration within the U of I essentially replace the functions of the Traveling Scholars Program.
