Guaranteed Professional Program Admissions (GPPA)

What is the Guaranteed Professional Program Admissions Initiative?

The GPPA program allows a limited number of first year students per year to be admitted to UIC with guaranteed admission to one of several professional degree programs. Students follow a specific curriculum and meet established performance criteria to maintain guaranteed admission.

With the security of GPPA, students are able to focus on undergraduate studies and have the freedom to pursue many subject areas and disciplines. In addition, participants have early and frequent contact with professional school faculty and advisors. Most students in GPPA also benefit from the facilities and services of the UIC Honors College.

The GPPA APPLICATION for Fall 2017 will be available on August 1, 2016 through the Common Application.

GPPA MEDICINE DEADLINE: December 1st, 2016
