Transfer Admission Requirements

To apply for admission, transfer students must submit the following items to guarantee a full review:

  1. Applicants may apply either through UIC’s web application or if they wish, through the Common Application Online. Apply now!
  2. Submit the non-refundable application fee of $50 for both domestic and international students. How do I request an application fee waiver.
  3. Official transcripts from all college or Universities attended.
  4. Any applicant who has attended an international college or university may be required to submit evidence of English proficiency. Please see the International Admissions requirements for TOEFL/IELTS requirements and exemptions.
  5. A transfer applicant who was previously dismissed from a collegiate institution for disciplinary or academic reasons must submit a petition.

For fullest consideration, a transfer grade point average of 2.50/4.00 on the basis of all transferable work attempted is recommended. Transcripts should illustrate a minimum of 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of transferable college classroom credit at the time of application. College and departmental requirements vary.

Transfer grades for all baccalaureate coursework attempted and accepted are used in computing the transfer student's grade point average. When a course is repeated, both grades are considered when calculating the GPA. Incomplete grades more than one year old are considered as failing grades in computing the grade point average. Only coursework that is similar in nature, content, and level to that offered by UIC is acceptable. Technical, vocational, developmental, and remedial coursework generally is not transferable. Credit for nontraditional experiential prior learning is not transferable. International credentials are evaluated separately by each college. For a list of specific required coursework at time of application and enrollment, see below.
