Summer 2022 Orientation


In collaboration with the UIC New Student and Family Programs and Colleges, the LARES program participates in all First-Year and Transfer Student Summer 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 UIC college culture and foster a sense of belonging for students. Additionally, LARES advisors assist with financial aid questions, course registration, provide information on academic and scholarship opportunities, and inform students of college graduation requirements.

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 link; 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
