Fall AAMP Registration Is Now Online!

Register for Fall AAMP 2014 by following this link.  The Asian American Mentor Program (AAMP) is a peer mentor program that helps incoming first year and transfer students get acclimated and have a smooth transition to UIC. 

Summer Asian American Mentor Program

The Asian American Mentor Program provides incoming first-year students enrolled in Summer College with peer mentors who will show you around, give you tips for college success, and connect you with campus resources. Students who join AAMP in the summer will also continue on with their mentors in the fall when there will be AAMP workshops, activities, and events. AAMP small groups hold social activities on and off-campus. It's a great way to ease the transition from high school to college at UIC!
