LARES Students laying

In collaboration with the UIC New Student and Family Programs and Colleges, the LARES program participates in all First-Year and Transfer Student Orientations during the Spring and Summer. 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 admitted students to UIC and encourages them to connect with a LARES advisor early on. Students are assigned to LARES advisors based on their major and pre-educational goals. To identify your LARES advisor, visit the LARES Advising webpage.
