Mark your Calendars:  October 1, 2014

The ILLINOIS MSF begins in June of each year and concludes the following May. On October 1, 2014 we will begin accepting applications for admission to the ILLINOIS MSF for June 2015!

The MSF Program reviews applications in batches. All complete applications are reviewed at each admission deadline. Those applications that are not complete or are wait-listed are rolled to the next admission deadline. Admission is highly competitive, therefore it is in your best interest to submit your completed application as early as possible.
