Domestic Admission

Domestic Admission Instructions

A few days after you have submitted the online application you will receive an email with instructions on where to upload all required supporting documents. Admission recommendations cannot be made until all required documents have been received.

Please note the following:

  • Applicants must use application form hosted by the¬†Office of Admissions¬†(* except for programs noted below).
  • A non-refundable application fee of $70 (U.S. currency) is required to have your application reviewed.. This fee is waived for applicants seeking readmission who have been previously enrolled at UIC as a graduate student, and employees of UIC.
  • An international credential evaluation fee of $30 is assessed on any applicant presenting international course work requiring an evaluation regardless of residency.
  • You must upload unofficial copies of transcripts in English. If you are admitted, official documents will be requested at that time, along with submission instructions.
  • If your program requires letters of recommendation, you will need to provide email address for each of your recommenders.
  • Program-specific requirements (e.g. writing samples, personal statements, resumes, letters of purpose, letters of recommendation, etc.) must be submitted using the document upload process (see link above) unless specifically directed to you otherwise by the program to which you are applying.  (GRE, TOEFL, IELTS and other test scores must be sent directly from the testing service to UIC. UIC’s Institutional Code is 1851 for the GRE and the TOEFL; however, you may also upload unofficial copies.)
