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.

Connect with your LARES Advisor

If you are a prospective student who would like to learn more about the UIC Admission process and the LARES program, we encourage you to set up an appointment with your LARES advisor early on. To identify your LARES advisor, visit the LARES Academic Advising page. Students are assigned to LARES advisors based on their major and pre-educational goals.

As a prospective first-year and/or transfer student, please complete the following tasks:
  • Research UIC’s first-year & transfer admission requirements & deadlines.
  • Visit the “Prospective Student Information” Tab for specific admissions information.
  • Contact your LARES Advisor for guidance via email. Prospective students can schedule an in-person or virtual appointment with their LARES Academic Advisor to discuss first year admission requirements and next steps.
  • Follow our social media for upcoming events and opportunities!
