Information for Students

UIC SnAP is a campus-wide scholarship management system that holds over 500 scholarships for UIC students. Students may use this single portal to view and apply for scholarships at UIC. To begin using SnAP, go to the SnAP Login. As a UIC student, you use your netid and associated password to log in. In order to receive scholarship consideration, you MUST fill out the General Application and Profile Information.

Newly enrolling students: If you’re new to UIC this fall, please keep in mind that SnAP is normally used for our current students who are already enrolled. You may begin reviewing scholarships in SnAP once you have a netid and password. Most scholarships within the portal require completed credit hours at UIC and a UIC GPA.

Please note that a new General Application must be submitted each academic year. Students may visit UIC SnAP starting on August 21, 2023 to submit a General Application; applications submitted prior to August 21, 2023 have been archived and are no longer accessible.
