Policies

Program Date Change or Cancellation Policy

If you need to cancel or change your or your family/guest reservation, you must do so a minimum of seven days prior to your scheduled date by adjusting your reservation status in my.uic.edu. Changes or cancellations made less than seven days prior to the scheduled date of your program will result in the respective orientation fees being assessed, regardless of your attendance to the university. Additionally, if you or your guests fail to attend your scheduled orientation program, the appropriate orientation fees will be applied to your student account. If you have any questions about this policy, please call our office at 312-996-3271.

If you have scheduled an orientation and then decide to adjust your enrollment status (such as deferred or withdrawal from the University) you MUST:

  • Cancel your UIC Orientation reservation online through my.uic.edu seven days prior to your scheduled orientation.
  • Log on to my.uic.edu to adjust your Intent to Enroll status, the official method through which to inform the university. (NetID and common password are needed)
  • If you have any questions about deferment or changing your enrollment status at UIC, please contact the Office of Admissions at 312-996-4350.

No refunds will be provided to those who attend their scheduled orientation session and later withdraw from UIC.

Alcohol and Illegal Drug Policy

To ensure that everyone has a safe and successful orientation experience, we expect all students to abide by federal, state, and local law, as well as university policies.

All participants of UIC Orientation are subject to UIC policies regarding alcohol use and illegal drugs, which can be found on the university’s website: Policy Regarding Alcohol and Other Drug Use. If you are found in violation of these rules at orientation, you will be asked to leave the program, charged the full amount for attendance, and you will be referred to the Dean of Students office. Additionally, your admission to UIC may be revoked.

In short, alcohol and illegal drugs are not allowed at orientation.
