Application Information


ADMISSIONS:  Graduate and Professional Admissions manages the online application process. Before you apply, familiarize yourself with all admission processes and requirements as explained on the Admissions web site.

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS:  Pay particular attention to information for international applicants if that applies to you.

ACCOUNT AND PASSWORD:  You will first create an online account and password. You may log out and return to your application as often as necessary. Follow the detailed online “Application Instructions” to complete each section of the application.

APPLICATION INFORMATION:  Indicate the program to which you are applying in the “Applicant Information” section. To ensure you are applying to an Illinois PSM program, use the “Concentration” drop-down menu and select “Professional Science Masters."

STATEMENTS:  In the "Statements" section of the application, you are asked to upload a resume and a personal statement; these two documents are required. For the personal statement, include in your discussion how you believe your background, interests, and career aspiration can best be served by completing a professional science master's program. Also, under "Statements," there is a section for "Program-Specific Questions." The Illinois PSM programs do not require program-specific questions, so you may skip this item.

To start or continue your application, use the "Apply" button below to access the Graduate and Professional Admissions webpage. You may stop and return at any time.


If you have questions or need assistance, contact Graduate and Professional Admissions or the Illinois PSM at or (217) 265-5363.
