Please visit for all ICT application details, as requirements, recommendations, and application timelines are subject to change each year.

  • Due to space limitations, a competitive application process is used to admit students to Gies Business from other academic units on campus.
  • Students apply for ICT during the spring semester their freshman year at Illinois for the following fall admission to Gies Business. Students who have completed more than two semesters at Illinois or students who were admitted as Off-Campus Transfer students are not eligible to apply. Notification of admission will occur in late June.
  • To be eligible for admission, there are required courses that students must have completed by the end of spring semester their freshman year. There are also recommended courses that could be beneficial to the student. Students will also submit a number of required essays as part of the application process.
  • The admissions committee uses a holistic approach, which is detailed on the website listed above. Only college coursework and grades will be considered for academic review. High school grades and ACT/SAT/TOEFL scores are not factors.

Academic Advising: Students are strongly encouraged to talk with their current academic advisor if they are interested in transferring to Gies so they maximize the opportunity to meet admission requirements, particularly completion of the required courses. The Gies Undergraduate Admissions office will hold ICT information sessions each semester and a Gies advisor will also hold weekly drop-in hours; the dates, times, and location will be posted on the information website listed above.
