Students who have completed course work at foreign institutions should follow the instructions provided for international applicants for submitting those academic credentials.
    • International applicants should upload their documents to the SOPHAS application. The UIC Office of Admissions will accept these as unofficial documents, sufficient for the admissions process. If further documents are needed, they can be uploaded to the UIC Supplemental Application. For international students who are admitted and matriculate to UIC, they will need to send official transcripts directly to the UIC Office of Admissions at that time.
  7. Standardized test scores are not required for the DrPH program.


Please download the SOPHAS abbreviated instructions for detailed information on each application piece required for submission.  The instructions can be downloaded here: http://www.sophas.org/documents/Abbr_instructions.pdf
