Experience UIC

We are proud to offer a separate, yet concurrent, UIC Orientation for families. This program is an excellent opportunity to become more familiar with the campus and its resources, policies, and procedures. Family plays a significant role in a student’s adjustment to college life. This program will provide you with the information needed to better support your student during their transition to UIC.

Program Dates

Program dates for 2016 range from May 25 – August 15. Not all dates are available to students in all academic programs. We recommend that you attend your Orientation on the same day as your student.

Orientation Fees

A fee of $75 for each family member/guest will be charged to your student’s university bill.
