The following instructions pertain to all undergraduate programs administered by the Department of Kinesiology and Nutrition.

UIC has instituted a new system which allows you to submit your application form and fee online; to upload all required and optional forms and materials in support of your application; and for your recommenders to upload letters. Instructions for uploading supplemental materials can be found at the UIC Admissions page.

Please visit the Office of Admissions website and select the “Apply Transfer” option to start the application process. You have the option of applying with the UIC Web Application, or the Common Application. Either option is appropriate.

Once you finalize and submit your application and the application fee, the system will send you further instructions (typically on the next business day) on using the application checklist to upload supplemental application materials.

Please note that you do not have to enter and submit all application information, or upload all materials, at one sitting. You can return to the system as many times as you need to. You can also return to the system checklist as often as you like to see what materials have been successfully uploaded, and subsequently verified as received by the department.
