UIC is focused on eliminating disparities in health, education and economic opportunity. Community engagement is a centerpiece of UIC’s urban mission.

As a charter signatory to the integrated climate commitment, UIC has pledged to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions 40% from 2004 levels by 2030 — and to be carbon-neutral by 2050. Further goals are to become a zero-waste, net-zero-water campus, and a biodiverse campus.

UIC becomes greener every year — through plantings that have led to its designation as a Tree Campus USA each year since 2011 as well as its commitment to LEED-certified buildings, recycling, active transportation and public transit. Bike-sharing stations are conveniently placed throughout the campus, which itself is located near three rail stations.

The University of Illinois at Chicago is pleased to share the Annual Security & Fire Safety Report with all prospective students. The report contains information regarding campus security and personal safety including topics such as: crime prevention, public safety authority, crime reporting policies, fire safety, disciplinary procedures, and fire statistics in UIC residential facilities and crime statistics for the three previous calendar years.

The intent to enroll and matriculation process can vary by program, so it is very important to heed any instructions provided to you by the department.

Most applicants admitted to a graduate level degree program are able to declare their intent to enroll (to accept or decline the offer of admission) from the application status page. Some programs require an enrollment deposit as part of the intent to enroll process. Please refer to the department directly if you have any questions about enrollment deposits. is UIC's student portal, designed to assist admitted students through the initial enrollment process.

Be ready with the following 2 pieces of information in order to activate your portal account:

  • University ID Number (UIN)
    • This 9-digit number is noted on email correspondence from the Office of Admissions. It is also noted on the application status page.
  • Token
    • Tokens are sent to all newly admitted students via an email sent within two days of the initial decision notification. The token is also available within the decision update on the application status page.

After activating your portal account, access the UIC Connect tab in the portal to get started.

Admit letters are sent by mail and available online.

All official admit letters from the Office of Admissions are mailed out via postal mail to the mailing address on record with the university. They are typically mailed out within 5 business days of the decision posting to the application by the Office of Admissions. Mailed letters may take some additional time to reach international addresses.

Admit letters are also available online in PDF format via your application status page.

Students admitted to the Doctor of Physical Therapy and School of Law programs will receive official notification of admission directly from the program.

If you're an International student who will need a student visa, submit the OIS Financial Documents.

Financial documents for visa processing must be submitted online through the application checklist for the Office of International Services. 

Official/final credentials are needed for your permanent file.

Most degree-seeking students will be admitted conditionally, based on unofficial (scanned) credentials or an in-progress degree program. The decision posted to your application online and the admission letter will indicate if you have been admitted conditionally. (See the next section below for additional details on what conditional admission entails.)

Official credentials should be sent to the following address prior to the start of the admission term, but you may alternatively submit the credentials in person at the Office of Admissions in the Student Services Building (SSB) when you arrive on campus at the beginning of your admission term, as long as they remain sealed.  

If you're not sure what your admission decision means, please see below. 


A decision of Admit is a full standing admission. 

Conditional Admit

Conditional admission means that you were admitted with full standing, but still need to submit final, official academic credentials since the admission decision was made based upon unofficial credentials or while your prior degree program was still in progress. The application checklist and university admission letter will both indicate the official credentials that you will need to submit.

Conditionally admitted students can enroll and study during their first term at UIC, but will not be able to register for their second term until the requested official credentials are received. A registration hold is placed on the student record which takes effect after the registration period of the first term. We recommend that all students clear their pending conditions by submitting the required credentials after being admitted, when they arrive on campus, or shortly therafter. Admissions holds will not be released until the required documentation is submitted to the Office of Admissions.

Admit - Limited Status

An admission with limited status means that you were admitted to the university with the approval of the program (and Graduate College) in a probationary status due to certain deficiencies in your application (i.e., low GPA, missing pre-requisite coursework, etc.).

Students admitted with limited status must meet certain criteria within their first term or year in order to remain in the program. The specific details concerning the conditions of limited status admission are communicated to students by the program directly.

Conditional Admit - Limited Status

Conditionally admitted students with limited status are those that have been admitted with limited status and must also submit final, official credentials. Please see the two previous sections for details. 

Admit - Clear

Conditionally admitted students will receive an Admit - Clear decision after acceptable final, official credentials are received. An email notification is sent to confirm that the pending credential requirements have been satisfied. The hold placed by the Office of Admissions will also be removed at this time.

The Admit - Clear decision status pertains only to credential requirements for the Office of Admissions and does not pertain to limited status conditions.

Admitted graduate and professional degree-seeking students may defer admission.

Admission can be deferred only once for up to one academic year for students unable to enroll in their initial term of admission. Deferral requests are subject to approval by the program and Office of Admissions. Non-degree admission cannot be deferred.

Start by notifying your program that you would like to defer. Programs must approve deferrals first. They will then forward the request to the Office of Admissions for final approval. If approved, a new admission record will be created for the deferral term and a new admission letter will be sent out.

International students in need of a visa who would like to defer that have already submitted financial documents should also contact the Office of International Services to determine if new financial documents will need to be submitted.
