University of Illinois College of Medicine

Campus assignment

When admitted students accept their offer of admission to the M.D. program, theyalso submit a ranking of their top two preferred campus sites. Admitted students receive their campus assignment via the applicant portal after notice of formal acceptance.  Factors considered for campus assignment are in alignment with the specific mission of each campus and include, but are not limited to, where the student interviewed and the content of the application. The college makes every effort to assign admitted students to their first choice of campus;however, it is not always possible.

Admitted students who do not receive their first choice of campus, and wish to be considered for campus re-assignment, should send a request to medadmit@uic.edu. The request should contain compelling reasons to justify a potential change of campus.

The Office of Medical College Admissions cannot guarantee that requests will be granted since changes in assignments are based on availability of seats at the desired campus.

Requests are reviewed on an ongoing basis until the class at each site is finalized. Those admitted students who have submitted a campus re-assignment request will receive a response from the Office of Medical College Admissions in the form of an email and in the case of a change an update to the acceptance portal.
