Special Instructions for High School Applicants

Check if you are eligible to apply:

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 13, 2024, you are eligible to apply for the 4-week session. If you will have graduated by June 10, 2024, you are eligible to apply for the 8-week session.

What you’ll need to submit to complete your application:

In addition to submitting the Summer Session Only application, which requires you to enter your expected graduation date before submitting, you will also need to provide eligible documentation that confirms your graduation date, such as one of the following:

  • Copy of high school diploma
  • Copy of final high school transcript indicating graduation date
  • Letter from high school counselor verifying your graduation date (it should also include your full name, date of birth, and name and address of your school)

We ask that you submit your supporting document as soon as it is available to you, but understand that this may be after you have already enrolled in your UIC summer courses.

How to submit your supporting document:

After you submit your application, you will be provided a way to upload this document when you check the status of your application.

If you have questions about your eligibility, please contact the Summer Session Office.
