									A message from the Dean of the Graduate College
The Graduate College at the University of Illinois at Chicago is dedicated to a simple
idea: bringing together superb students with outstanding research faculty in a diverse
and stimulating urban environment.

There has never been a more exciting time to pursue advanced study. New fields of
learning and new approaches in traditional fields are providing today’s graduate
students with ideas, skills, and disciplines to shape the world around them.

UIC's 6000 graduate students are enrolled in nearly fifty PhD programs and over
eighty masters programs, spanning the range of Arts, Humanities, Social Sciences, Life
Sciences, Physical Sciences and Engineering. UIC has many advantages to offer:
nationally ranked programs, award-winning faculty, and the most diverse graduate
student body among the nation's leading research universities - all within the heart of
metropolitan Chicago. UIC may justly claim to be a model for the research universities
of the new century.

I invite you to make it your home.

   department offering the graduate program they seek. Academic departments will evaluate applications and send admissions
   recommendations to the Graduate College.
5) Each academic department establishes its application deadline and the additional application materials the department must receive before
   an application will be reviewed for admission. It is the responsibility of the applicant to be aware of additional application materials
   and/or credentials required, as well as the application deadlines established by the department of interest. Deadlines and additional
   admission requirements are listed by program on pages 14-21.

   additional instructions regarding their application process described in “Instructions for International Applicants” on page 3 and 4.

disclose your SSN without your consent for any purpose except as allowed by law.

Graduate College Application and Credentials Deadlines
Your application, application fee, academic credentials and any additional materials required by your program must be received by the deadline stated. Deadlines may change
without notice and many programs will close before the stated deadline because of the large volume of applications they receive. It is to your advantage to apply well before
the deadline. Applications and materials received after the deadlines will not be considered. International applicants have earlier deadlines than domestic applicants.
All applicants should use the General Graduate Deadlines listed below unless your intended program of study is listed under Graduate Programs with Earlier Deadlines.
