See detailed information on the application/credentials submission process.  All documents must be converted to a PDF before they are uploaded into the admission system.

Applicants Who are Currently UIC Graduate Students

Applicants who are currently students at UIC as graduate degree-seeking, or graduate nondegree, do not complete the Graduate Application form.  Instead, students should complete a Request to Change or Add a Graduate Program Form. 

  • Applicants in a degree program will be attempting to add this certificate as 2nd program to your current program.
  • If you are currently an unassigned nondegree student you would change to this certificate, rather than add as a 2nd program.

The program code for the Campus Certificate in the Foundations of College Instruction is 20FS5531NDEG.

In addition, the Foundations of College Instruction Supplemental Application Form must be attached to the Request to Change of Add a Graduate Program Form.

Once both forms are completed, you may email to both forms (pdf) to GC_COLL_INSTRUC@uic.edu, or your current program may submit them to the Graduate College.
