Summer Session Only Online Application

You answered: No, as of today, I have not graduated from high school.


Only students who have graduated from high school before the first day of the Summer Session in which they would like to enroll in a course are eligible to apply. In other words, if you will have graduated by May 18, 2020, you are eligible to apply for the 4-week session. If you will have graduated by June 15, 2020, you are eligible to apply for the 8-week session. Please note that you’ll be asked for your expected graduation date when you apply.

All eligible high school seniors must first complete the Summer Session Only application, then submit a letter from your high school guidance counselor confirming your expected graduation date. The letter should be on official school letterhead and needs to include the following information:

  • Your full name and date of birth
  • The name and address of your high school
  • Your expected high school graduation date
  • Any additional information that your counselor would like to submit in support of you attending UIC’s Summer Session.

Your guidance counselor should email the letter as a pdf attachment, along with a cover sheet that has the guidance counselor’s contact information, to Jamie Palumbo, Assistant Director of Admissions, at The letter MUST come from your guidance counselor’s email address, not your own. The letter must be emailed by the application deadline for the session in which you wish to enroll. Please note that if you do not submit this letter, your application will not be processed.

If you are eligible, please continue on to the next question. If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact the Summer Session Office.
