If you are not currently a student at the University of Illinois, please review the resources available here for eligibility and application information.
All current University of Illinois students who wish to transfer to a concentration in ACE and all current ACE students who wish to change concentrations must complete the transfer process.
The next opportunity to apply to transfer to ACE or within ACE for current UIUC students will be in August and the deadline will be Friday, August 16, 2019 at 12:00 noon. Applications are not currently available, but will be available July 15.
About the Application
Transfer into all Department of ACE concentrations is competitive. Strong applications will demonstrate interests aligned with ACE concentration; potential to complete all requirements within 10 total semesters; and GPA in UIUC courses and “core” courses. A 3.0 GPA is considered competitive, but students with a GPA below 3.0 are still encouraged to apply if the other elements of their application are strong.
Applications can be sent as email attachments to email@example.com or delivered as hard copy to 304 Mumford Hall.
