You must have completed CLJ 101 with a “C” or better to become a CLJ major. This prerequisite can be met through transfer credit or at UIC.
Visit a Social Science Advisor on the third floor of University Hall (see "Contact Information" below for further instructions) to fill out the "change of major" form. The Social Science Advisor will approve the major declaration and file the form with LAS.
It can take up to a semester; after that, check with an LAS advisor about the status of your declaration.
Transfer students MUST complete 18 hours in the CLJ Department.
Yes. Go to http://www.transfer.org/
to look up which classes taken at two-year colleges will be credited by UIC as counting toward completion of college or major requirements. There is no similar web site for students transferring to UIC from another four-year institution. Transfer equivalencies from four-year institutions will be determined after you apply to UIC.
