Transfer and Readmit Orientation Program

The UIC Transfer and Readmit Student Orientation Program is a one-day session designed to acquaint you with UIC and provide you with your first opportunity to meet with an academic advisor. Orientation is required for transfer students, and although it is optional for most readmitted students, attendance is highly encouraged.

Special Note: Unfortunately, friends, current students, or significant others will not be allowed to “tag along” with the student during the UIC Transfer and Readmit Orientation Program. We welcome these individuals as participants in the UIC Parent and Guest Orientation Program.

Please be aware that check-in for transfer and readmit students will begin at 7:45 am at the Student Services Building (SSB) located at 1200 West Harrison Street.
