All UIC Global Graduate Direct students will continue to be supported in their programs through graduation.

UIC Global is a collaborative partnership between UIC and Shorelight to recruit and matriculate international students into master’s degree programs at UIC. UIC Global utilizes a network of on-site recruiters around the globe to promote UIC graduate programs and work with students through the UIC admissions process.
