A partnership in college access
At the University of Illinois Chicago, we recognize and celebrate our students' unique educational journeys. We welcome students directly from high school, transferring from community colleges and other universities as well as those returning to higher education to complete their undergraduate degree. We hope these resources provide insight to frequently asked questions and support the work of those helping aspiring students navigate the admissions process.
High school counselors
For those of you serving the high school population, you will find resources on the First Year admissions process, how to connect with us for visits, and more. First Year applicants who have never attended college (with the exception of dual credit) use The Common Application. We also participate in Slate.org and have an additional counselor portal to use as resources. Our Counselor Update and application guides are also available below.
Community college counselors
Transfer students make up 40% of the UIC undergraduate student population. We are proud to be the top destination for transfer students in the State of Illinois. We recognize the importance of providing community college staff with the information and resources to help you support your students through the transfer application process. Transfer students apply using the UIC application. We've also pulled targeted resources from across the UIC community and created a quick Community College Counselor Guide to reference as you advise community college students.
