  • What does it mean to be a “nondegree continuing education” student?
            

    Typically, students must apply and be admitted to a university before registering for credit courses. Enrollment through the UIC Extended Campus combines the application and registration processes.  The first time you submit an enrollment request, you are applying to UIC for admission as a nondegree student for the purpose of only taking courses offered through UIC EC in addition to registering in a course.  As a nondegree continuing education student, you are able to take selected courses without going through the formal university application, admission, and registration processes, provided you meet course eligibility requirements.  Please note that admission under this status neither implies nor guarantees admission to a UIC degree program.

  • If I want to cancel my enrollment either before or after the course starts, what do I need to do?
            

    Any request to cancel an enrollment must be made in writing to UIC EC. If you enroll in a credit course and fail to make a written request to cancel your enrollment, you will receive a failing grade in the course that will appear on your formal university transcript. Please note that cancelling your enrollment in a credit course may result in a “W” grade on your university transcript, depending on the date we receive your request.

    If you wish to cancel your enrollment, please e-mail us a cancellation request from the e-mail address listed in your student profile, or complete the cancellation form and send it to us by e-mail (save the form as a .pdf file and send it to us as an attachment) or fax it to (312) 413-9730.

  • If I cancel my enrollment, will I get a refund?
            

    Nondegree Continuing Education Students: In order to be eligible for a refund, you must make a written request to cancel your enrollment prior to the first class meeting or course-specific refund deadline, whichever is earlier. Only a few courses have a refund deadline; this can be found in the "Comments" section of the individual course information page on the UIC EC Web site. In all other cases, you will need to cancel your enrollment on or before the first class meeting. If you cancel your enrollment in writing prior to the first class meeting or the course-specific refund deadline, your payment will be returned. No refunds will be issued for any reason after the first day of class or the course-specific refund deadline. If you did not submit payment or you are funded by an outside source, no refund will be issued.

  • Can courses taken through UIC EC be used toward a degree?
            

    Credit courses taken as a nondegree student through UIC EC are regular university courses and may be applied to a degree at UIC or elsewhere. However, in order for a course to be applied toward a degree at UIC, the following requirements must be met:

    1. You must have applied to the university and been accepted to a degree program;
    2. The course must be part of the approved degree curriculum;
    3. The credit hours for the course must fall within the number of credit hours approved for transfer from nondegree to degree status; and
    4. You must petition to have the course transferred from nondegree to degree status.

    If you have any questions about whether this course(s) could count towards a degree program at UIC, contact the appropriate college or department.  If you intend to transfer this course to a degree program at another college or university, contact an advisor at that school for information.

  • I was admitted to UIC through the formal university admissions process; can I enroll in credit courses offered through the Extended Campus?
            

    UIC degree-seeking students and students admitted nondegree through a formal university admissions process are eligible to enroll in credit courses offered through UIC EC.  For these courses, enrollment is done through the UIC EC Web site. However, please note that some of the credit courses listed on the UIC EC Web site are sections of UIC campus courses (listed in the UIC Class Schedule Search) set up specifically for students who are not current UIC students. If a course listed on the UIC EC Web site is "co-listed" with a campus course, that fact will be indicated on the course information page. UIC students must enroll in the regular campus section of these courses, using Student Self-Service.
