First-Year Information

First Year Students

The LARES program is excited to connect with you virtually! Through our virtual orientation sessions, LARES advisors will introduce admitted students to the numerous services provided by the LARES program. LARES advisors will answer financial aid questions, assist in the course registration process, provide information on academic and scholarship opportunities, and connect admitted students with undergraduate UIC Latino students. This session will be held during the Virtual Orientation Session at 2:00 PM.

All new first-year and transfer students will be assessed the New Student Fee as part of their first semester tuition and fees. Students who attend our orientation session will have the opportunity to win an award to cover the New Student Fee awarded by LARES.

Please contact lares@uic.edu if you have any questions.
