Transfer Students


The UIC Orientation for transfer and readmitted students is a one-day session 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.

Program Dates

Program dates for 2018 range from May 24th to July 27th. Not all dates are available to students in all academic programs.

Orientation Fees

Students will be assessed a fee of $75 for each transfer or readmit student and $75 for each family member. Fees will be charged to your university account after you attend. Fees will post to your account in late summer to avoid mid-summer financial aid conflicts when trying to register for classes. Please plan accordingly for this charge to post to your account prior to your start at UIC.
