Contact Information




An applicant must be admitted or enrolled as a student in a UIC graduate degree program, master’s or doctoral, in a GCSRM participating academic unit.

Prior to submitting an application, the student must consult with his/her academic advisor. If the student’s academic advisor is not a member of the GCSRM faculty, consultation with a member of the GCSRM faculty from the student’s academic unit is strongly recommended. Applicants also are encouraged but not required to consult with one of the GCSRM co-directors. The student and advisor prepare and submit a proposed program of study that fulfills the GCSRM curriculum requirements.

Application Process

Applicants must submit a complete, original, hard copy of the GCSRM application to one of the GCSRM co-directors. In addition to providing essential background information, the application must include the proposed GCSRM program of study, and it must be signed and dated by the applicant and the academic advisor. The proposed program of study subsequently may be revised, subject to approval, to reflect changes in a student’s interests and goals.

Applications are considered on an individual, noncompetitive basis.
Application to the GCSRM may be submitted at any time while a student is admitted or enrolled as a student in a UIC graduate degree program in a GCSRM participating academic unit. Completing the application process as early as possible will allow GCSRM co-directors and staff to give students feedback about their course of study. This will help ensure that students fulfill the GCSRM requirements. Although we cannot guarantee a place in GCSRM courses for any student, in cases where demand for a course is high, students who already have been accepted into the GCSRM may be given preference when registering for those courses.

Applicants will be notified of acceptance and approval of the proposed program of study by letter from the co-directors. A copy of the letter will be sent to the applicant’s academic advisor and the GCSRM faculty member who signed the application.
