Taking Summer

UIC offers two sessions over the summer:

  • 4-week session: May 19 – June 13
  • 8-week session: June 16 – August 8

All of the summer courses are part of UIC’s regular curriculum and carry full academic credit.

Current UIC students

If you’re a currently enrolled student in good standing at UIC and will not be graduating before the summer, you are eligible to attend Summer Session. You do not have to apply to take summer courses; you register for summer courses at the same time as when you register for fall courses. Advance Registration for summer courses begins April 1. Time Tickets are available for viewing in early March.

Graduating Seniors who want to take summer courses

If you are graduating prior to Summer Session and want to take undergraduate courses during the summer, you will need to apply as a Summer Session Only student. As a Summer Session Only student, you would be admitted to UIC as a nondegree undergraduate for the summer term only. Please note that this means, unlike your current status at UIC, you will be assessed the Summer Session Only tuition rates, you will not be eligible for financial aid, and you may have different registration requirements.

Since you are a current UIC student, you will have been assigned a Time Ticket during Advance Registration. However, you should wait until you have been admitted as a Summer Session Only student before you register for courses. If you mistakenly register for courses before you have been admitted, contact the Registration Helpline at (312) 996-8600 for assistance.
