In collaboration with the UIC New Student and Family Programs and Colleges, the LARES program participates in all First-Year and Transfer Student Orientations. In addition to providing co-advising with the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Business Administration, Engineering, and Education, LARES advisors are also available to assist students in their transition to UIC. LARES advisors work with admitted students in helping them adjust to the culture of higher education. They are also available to assist with financial aid questions, course registration, provide information on academic and scholarship opportunities, and inform students of college graduation requirements. The LARES advisors use its orientation sessions to provide admitted students with a sense of belonging by not only helping them connect to fellow UIC undergraduate students but to also introduce them to student organizations to further encourage their involvement.
The LARES program welcomes you to UIC and encourages you to connect with your LARES advisor early on. To identify your LARES advisor, visit the LARES Advising webpage; students are assigned to LARES advisors based on their major and pre-educational goals.
As a newly admitted incoming student, be sure to complete any placement exams, online orientation, and register for an orientation session. This information is in your UIC student portal at my.uic.edu.
