We’re here to help with any post-application questions. If you’re not sure what to do next, contact our office of student affairs.
After You Apply
You’ve applied and submitted your application. Now what?
You can check the status of your application any time for an application checklist to ensure that your items are correct and complete.
The time to complete an application review process varies. After we complete our review of your application, we communicate our decision to the central admissions office who updates the official application record. We do this throughot the application cycle.
In some specific cases, applications we recommend for admission may need to also be reviewed by the UIC Graduate College. The graduate college may decide to uphold our recommendation or deny the application.
After a decision has been made
Once a decision is entered, the application portal updates and an official decision letter is mailed out.
If you've been admitted
Congratulations! Access our admitted student page to follow up with next steps.
International students: If you’ll need a student visa, you should submit OIS financial documents to the UIC Office of International Services.
If you need to defer admission
Admitted students can ask to defer their enrollment for a maximum of one year (e.g., fall admission can be deferred to the following spring, summer or fall terms). Submit your request as soon as possible that you’d like to defer admission.
If you've been denied
You may contact us directly to inquire about our decision. In some cases, we may advise you on what you can do to improve your applicant profile or successfully apply for a future term.
