Orientation feel like a blur? We understand that UIC’s registration process is most likely different from your previous institution, so we have created space to walk through the tools you'll need. In this interactive session you will prepare for registration through finding your time ticket, midterm grades, and understanding whether or not you have registration holds. We will help you access and understand your Degree Audit Report (DARs) and online registration tools so you can know what courses to plan for and what questions to ask your general or departmental academic advisors.
