Students admitted for the Fall 2017 semester:

Information from UIC Admissions

The Newly Admitted Students Page provides much of the relevant information you'll need to prepare for the fall. We encourage you to read it carefully! You should also be receiving other communications from the University with important information. Pay attention to these and act on them accordingly.

My.UIC Account

You’ll need to ensure that you’ve activated your my.UIC account. This will require your university ID number (or UIN), which you should have received via email during the application process.

Final Transcripts

If we have not yet received official and complete transcripts from your undergraduate degree, you’ll need to submit these by mail to the Office of Admissions.

If you’re unsure of whether you need to submit an official transcript, check to see if it is listed on your application status page. (Note: If you’ve earned your undergraduate degree from UIC, you will not need to submit a transcript.)

Visa Process for International Students

Students who will be attending UIC on a student visa need to submit the necessary documentation to the Office of International Services (OIS). All documents should be submitted through the application checklist for OIS, which may be accessed via your application status page. Questions about the I-20 and visa process should be directed to OIS: | 312-996-3121.

Student ID Card

UIC's university ID cards are called i-cards. You will be able to obtain one from the university ID Center after you have registered for classes for the Fall Semester. To obtain your i-card, you'll need to visit the ID Center in the Student Services Building (1200 W. Harrison St, Suite 1790) with a valid government-issued photo ID. The ID Center is open from 8:30am-5pm, Monday-Friday. Further information about the ID center and i-cards can be found at
