How can we help you?


The one-day Orientation for families is optional, but recommended. There is an additional $75 fee for each guest.

This fee covers the invitation mailing, meals, the services of the Student Orientation Leaders and reservations staff, and all associated program materials and activity costs.

Due to limited availability, we are not able to offer overnight accommodations for families and guests. The UIC Family Orientation is a one-day event.

The one-day Orientation for families is a separate, yet concurrent, Orientation designed to address your specific needs and concerns.

Advising appointments are your student’s chance to begin the process of taking responsibility for their academic life and to begin to develop essential decision-making skills with the support of their professional advisor. We encourage you to talk with your student about any questions or concerns before Orientation to ensure that those items are addressed.
