The UIC Orientation program for first-year students is a two-day overnight orientation 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 and experience campus.

When making travel arrangements, please be aware that all activities are mandatory and students may neither arrive late nor leave early. Students who may arrive late or leave early may be charged for their attendance and may be required to attend a future orientation session.

An overnight stay is required for the first-year program. We will provide on-campus overnight accommodations for each student.

Please note: We have a very specific Program Date Change or Cancellation Policy, which can be found in the Policies section of our website and in your UIC Orientation mailer.
