Student in the Quad

The LARES program is excited to connect with you virtually! Through our virtual appointments, LARES advisors prepare prospective first year students for the application process by providing information on UIC admissions requirements, financial aid, scholarship, academic and student life opportunities.

To request an appointment with your LARES Advisor, please email a couple of dates and times that you are available along with your preference of appointment type: video or phone call. Please provide a phone number where the advisor can contact you. You will then receive an appointment confirmation within two business days.
