If you are planning to transfer a course back to UIUC or UIS, it is your home institution that determines whether a particular UIC course will transfer. We encourage you to have your course approved by an advisor at your home institution before you register for it at UIC. You will want to provide your home college advisor with the UIC course description for approval. If your advisor requests a syllabus, you can check the appropriate academic department Web site to see if it is available online or contact the Summer Session Office and we’ll contact the instructor to see when the syllabus will be available. We may also be able to provide you with a syllabus from a previous semester to assist you with your course selection.
Many students use www.transferology.com to help them determine what courses will transfer back to their home school. However, we highly encourage you to speak with an advisor before making a final decision because certain courses may be transferable for some majors but not others. Only an advisor on your home campus can verify which courses will transfer correctly. Also, we suggest speaking with your advisor on how summer courses at UIC will affect your GPA as well as your progress towards your degree.
UIUC/UIS students must request a UIC transcript at the end of the summer in order for their grades to be transferred back to their home campus. Grades do not transfer automatically. Check out the Grades and Transcripts page for detailed instructions on requesting a transcript.
