Application deadlines: May 1 or Nov 1

Application Deadlines

Applications are due May 1 for Fall and November 1 for Spring. Decisions will be made 2-4 weeks after the deadline. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed.

Admittance into the program is based on academic professional background, work experience, and how the student will put the knowledge to practice.

Eager to get started or aren’t sure if the certificate program is right for you? Individual courses can be taken before applying for the AT Certificate Program. If you are later accepted into the ATCP, individual courses with a grade of B or higher can be applied to the program requirements. Register through Extended Campus.

How to Apply

You will need to submit the following:

1. ATCP application

The official ATCP application can be accessed through UIC’s Graduate and Professional Admissions page. Under the Graduate & Professional programs drop-down, choose Campus Certificate – Assistive Technology.

Submit by May 1 (Fall entry) or November 1 (Spring entry).

2. Resume/Curriculum vitae

Submit a current CV or resume under the “supplement” section of the application.

3. Transcripts

Proof of degree (such as a copy of your diploma) is required for Admissions review. However, the Assistive Technology Certificate Program requires applicants to also submit a copy of their most recent transcript.

Transcripts can be uploaded in the “Credentials Submission” section of the application. Transcripts for additional degrees you would like the committee to take into consideration are optional.

4. Application fee

A $70 application fee will become due upon submission of the application, at which time you will be prompted to submit payment. Applications remain in an incomplete status until the fee is paid.

Fee payment is accepted only online by credit card. Cash and checks are not accepted.

Where to send materials

All application materials will be uploaded through the official application.
