Academic Counseling is an opportunity to help you determine how to fulfill requirements, create objectives, decide on a minor and major, and career goals.
UIC’s fifteen academic colleges offer a broad variety of degree options, paving the way for students to realize higher educational, professional and career goals. To learn about undergraduate, graduate and professional school program options and degree requirements, please visit each page. Some programs may have citizenship and/or residency requirements for admission, enrollment, and/or certification or licensing. Be certain to research the requirements of your program of interest in order to determine that you are eligible. You will be assigned an academic advisor based on your college and degree. It is important to meet with your faculty advisor at least once a year to avoid any holds on your account.
If you are a first year student, make sure you visit your academic advisor to plan ahead your academic year and classes.
If you are thinking about transferring to UIC, make sure you meet with an academic advisor to check your transfer credit hours.
