The Admission Via Excellence Assessment is an ongoing report comparing AVE student progress to all other Illinois Resident UIC students.

A Review of UIC's Transition Year to the Common Application
UIC joined the Common Application (CA) consortium for the Fall 2013 application cycle. This report documents the transition to the CA as the tool for processing undergraduate applications. The document shares information and lessons learned during the fall 2013 application cycle. While the numbers reported in the document reflect final application numbers, it was initially drafted in the midst of the application cycle and was written in terms of the process. The report served to complement and add to the 2013 weekly application cycle reports distributed by AES. [download report] (UIC Login Required)
Advising Matters: An examination of how students use and value advising resources at UIC.
Advising Matters is a multi-year study of how UIC undergraduates use and value advising resources on campus. The study is on-going, but a series of reports and presentations have been prepared on data gathered thus far.
Grad Entering Student Survey
The Graduate College Entering Student Survey
The Graduate College Entering Student Survey is collaboration between the Graduate College and Academic and Enrollment Services. The survey is administered to newly enrolled graduate students. The reports on the GESS are available at the links below.
CPS Market Analysis
The 2018 CPS Market Analysis seeks to provide context into the availability of qualified Black UIC applicants in Chicago. The report examines CPS graduates by race/ethnicity who applied, admitted, and enrolled at UIC. Results reveal a racial disparity in the yield rate rate of Black CPS applicants to UIC. Reasons related to the internal and external Black UIC community are discussed as factors affecting the Black student yield rate.
College Student Experience Questionnaire (CSEQ) is a survey of enrolled students. The survey has been administered by Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and the Office of Vice Provost for Academic & Enrollment Services in alternating years since 2004.
During the spring of 2004, approximately 400 UIC students participated in the College Student Experience Questionnaire (CSEQ). This included about 170 freshmen. This report is an update on the status of those students four years later.
The full reports on CSEQ administration are available on the Student Affairs Research and Assessment website.
The Financial Hold Report examines the impact of an unpaid balance on undergraduate persistence at UIC. Students from the 2016 entering freshmen cohort who were financially ineligible to register for the spring 2017 semester accounted for one-third of the total non-returning student population in the spring 2017 semester. This report provides evidence of a substantial impact of an unpaid balance on a student's ability to persist at UIC.
Pathways to Success for African American Males at UIC
The Pathways study, funded by the Office of the Provost, was collaboration among the College of Education, the Office of Degree Progress and the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. The goal of the study was to examine the Pathways to Success for African American male students who navigated the academic and social systems at UIC to approach degree completion in a timely manner.
