Admissions Students Sitting

The LARES program collaborates and partners with the Office of Admission to coordinate and schedule virtual school visits with local high schools and community colleges in the Chicagoland area and surrounding suburbs.

LARES advisors work with high school and transfer students by providing them with UIC admission requirements, the application process, and LARES program details. Advisors are also available to assist with financial aid questions, provide information on academic and scholarship opportunities, and student organizations.
