Intercollege Transfer

The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences (LAS) welcomes interest from students currently enrolled at UIC who wish to transfer into LAS.

Minimum Requirements for Admission

Admission to LAS from another UIC College is generally available to those students in good academic standing who have a UIC term and cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.00 (A=4.00) and are making degree progress. Students must complete at least one semester of coursework at UIC.

All transfer coursework (even that which was previously reviewed by another UIC College) will be reviewed by LAS in order to have credit applied toward an LAS degree.

Application Timeline

All applications are reviewed after final grades post for the currently in-progress semester. Students will be notified of their application decision via their UIC email address one to two weeks after grades post, either prior to the start of the next semester or during the first week of the next semester. Admission becomes effective for the semester admitted, and tuition will be updated to reflect LAS fees once accepted.


Applications for Spring 2020 admission closed on December 13. Applications for Summer 2020 admission will open January 27, 2020. 

Intercollege Transfer Information Sessions

Attending an ICT Information Session is the only way for non-LAS students to meet with an LAS Academic Advisor. Information Sessions are not required for application. Spring 2020 Information Session dates and RSVP will be available January 2020.
