Chicago Star Application

The first thing to do is apply for admission. Once we have your admission application we can attach the Star Scholarship application. From there send your official transcripts to us. When those are received you are processed for admission. Once you are admitted you will have further discussions with the degree program adviser for the program you are applying for. When you have done that you will know the courses to register for. Once you have registered for all your courses the Star Scholarship will be awarded.
