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

Minimum Admission Requirements:

  • 2.0 UIC term GPA*
  • 2.0 cumulative GPA*
  • One semester of UIC completed coursework
  • Adequate progress towards completion of degree

*Some majors require a different GPA for admission into the major. To review program-specific requirements, consult the LAS Departments sections on the left-hand side of the UIC Catalog.

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.

Advising Sessions

LAS ICT is offering Online Info Sessions throughout the Fall semester for non-LAS students interested in transferring to LAS. Information Sessions will consist of a group session followed by one-on-one advising. Attending an Information Session is the only way to meet with an LAS academic advisor.

After signing up for an Information Session, you will receive a confirmation email one business day before the session with information on how to attend the meeting.

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.

The application deadline for Spring 2021 admission is Friday, December 11.
