Once you have familiarized yourself with your placement test results, learned about course requirements, and looked over course descriptions, we encourage you to register for courses. You do not have to wait until Orientation or until speaking with an academic advisor to register for classes. At Orientation, you will meet with an LAS academic advisor who will review the courses for which you have registered and will make suggestions if changes are needed.


If you were unable to attend an LAS Orientation program, please do the following:

  • Schedule an appointment to see an LAS academic advisor between July 28 and August 20. To schedule an appointment, call (312) 996-3366. Appointments are 30 minutes long and are available between 9:00am-12:00pm and 1:00pm-4:00pm. The LAS Academic Advising Center is located on the 3rd floor of University Hall, 601 S. Morgan Street.
    • If you are unable to schedule an appointment on the dates listed above, come to walk-in advising at the LAS Academic Advising Center on August 21, 22, or 25. Advisors will be available on these dates between 8:30am-11:30am and 1:00pm-4:00pm. Appointments are neither necessary nor available during walk-in advising.
  • A few notes:
    • Register for Fall 2014 classes! As a transfer or readmit student, you do not have to wait to see an advisor before you can register.
    • Take placement tests, if required.
    • Review the online resources above to help you with course registration and the additional resources below, if applicable:
    • Make sure the UIC Office of Admissions has final transcripts from any previous institutions.
    • Bring copies of any final transcripts to your appointment/walk-in advising if the coursework is not yet posted to your degree audit report (DARS).
    • If you are an international student, bring syllabi/course descriptions of any coursework completed outside of the U.S. to your appointment/walk-in advising so that the work can be reviewed after your visit to the LAS Academic Advising Center.
