2017 Admission Updates
- THE TOP FOUR PERCENT
Applicants who are Illinois residents can be automatically admitted to the academic college of their choice. (This excludes the Honors College and GPPA opportunities.) Besides being a first-year student and Illinois resident, eligibility requirements include ranking in the top four percent of their class at an accredited high school with more than 25 students or having an unweighted GPA of 3.9 or higher at schools that do not rank.
- ACCESS INTERVIEWS
UIC's holistic first-year application process is augmented through interviews that identify non cognitive indicators of success for select students. Students may be flagged for additional review and/or in-person interviews based on information included in their essays or letters of recommendation.
- AP/IB AND A-LEVEL CREDIT
UIC's AP and IB credit articulations are available in the catalog. All AP exam scores at 3 or above, and IB scores 4 or above will receive university credit. A-level credit policies are currently under review.
