Selection and Acceptance
Step 4: Selection and Acceptance

Since the College has a limited capacity, it must be selective in choosing students. The selection is based upon the applicant's credentials, letters of recommendation, and information obtained during the application process. A rolling admissions process is used with preference given to earlier applications. Admission to the College of Dentistry is competitive, and it should be recognized that not all candidates who apply will be admitted. Only those candidates deemed highly qualified will be invited for an on-campus interview in the months of April - August.  Invitations are extended by faculty and therefore should not be requested by the applicant. The Office of Admissions will notify all applicants of a final admissions decision no later than November.


Application Updates

Our office will send application status updates, including: acknowledgement receipt e-mails, missing credentials e-mails, and notification of interviews and admissions decisions via email. Each applicant at UIC will receive a UIN number (University Identification Number), please include your name and UIN when contacting the Admissions staff.
