Application Questions

We realize that navigating the college admission process during this time is stressful. We will be posting updates regarding deadlines and requirements. It is our intention to be a flexible and helpful as we can during this time.

  • Will there be changes to the May 1 Candidate Reply Date? We realize that we have asked you to make a decision regarding college and to let us know by May 1. UIS is extending that date to June 1st to give students and families additional time to visit and gather information regarding their decisions.
  • My application is incomplete, are there deadlines I will miss? We realize that you may not be able to supply all supporting documents as quickly as usual. Admissions and our campus partners will be as flexible as we can be regarding delays.
  • My application is incomplete due to a test score requirement; what do I do if my test date is canceled? Now that SAT and ACT testing have been cancelled until fall; we are considering files using other credentials. Complete the Prompted Questions form on your status page to be considered without test scores.
  • My application is incomplete due to a missing transcript; what do I do if I can’t get the documents sent? At this time, generally there is enough time that you will be able to have them sent at a later date.
  • If I am unable to be admitted or gain a visa for Fall, can I defer my application/admission? Yes, you can defer your start term on your application status page.
