  • 2. Apply to UIC through the transfer application or through the Common Application
  • 3. On the Honors College tab, select “Yes” to apply to the UIC Honors College.

Please be advised that you are required to submit an Honors College essay at time of application for full consideration.

If you are interested in applying to the Honors College, but have already submitted your UIC Application without indicating that you wanted to be considered for the Honors College, please access a secondary Honors College application through this link.
