Placement Testing

First-Year Students

Your Future Starts Here

The UIC Orientation for first-year students is a two-day overnight Orientation designed to acquaint you with UIC, ensure your success by providing information and up-to-date resources, and provide you with your first opportunity to meet with an academic advisor.

When making travel arrangements, please be aware that all activities are mandatory and students may neither arrive late nor leave early. An overnight stay is required for the first-year program. We will provide on-campus overnight accommodations for each student.

Placement Testing

All beginning first-year students are required to take one or more placement tests prior to the first semester of study. To determine your particular requirements please answer the questions in the “Placement Testing Section” in my.uic.edu. Placement tests MUST be completed prior to registering for Orientation.
