Family Orientation

Program Dates

Please discuss with your student when they plan to attend orientation. If any family or guests plan to attend orientation, it should be on the same day as the student. We highly encourage that your student registers all family members and guests through the orientation portal at Available orientation dates are dependent upon the student’s academic program.


Orientation Fees

A fee of $75 for each family member and guest will be charged to your student’s university bill at the conclusion of the current orientation season. Fees will post to your student’s account. Please plan accordingly for this charge to post to your student’s account prior to their start at UIC.


Program Check-In

Check-in is at 7:45am at the first floor of Student Center East (SCE) by the bookstore located at 750 South Halsted Street. It is important to note that aspects of the orientation program will have families and guests follow a separate program from the students. These sessions are designed to address your specific needs and concerns as families and guests. The UIC Orientation for families is a one-day event.
