UIC 101 - Transfer Info & Tour - register

Offered select Fridays at 11:30am, these sessions are targeted towards prospective transfer students.

Each program is approximately 2 hours in length and begins with an admissions presentation providing an overview of campus, admissions information, and insight into the transfer process, followed by a student-led tour of campus and a university residence hall.

Housing Events - register

You'll be able to visit a sample room during all UIC 101 programs - but check the calendar for a more in depth exploration of housing, including open house programs, individualized tours, and a limited number of overnight experiences.

Transfer Appointments

Appointments are arranged primarily for transfer and international students who have questions regarding the application process for their specific programs at the university. Please call (312) 996-4350 to schedule an appointment, or talk to an admissions counselor on the phone.  Appointment can be scheduled in person, or for out of state and international students, via Skype. 

Self Guided Tours - more info

Sometimes our available sessions do not meet the needs of your schedule.  If this is the case, we have some resources available for you to tour the campus on your own! 

Arranging Departmental Visits

Some departments and colleges at UIC offer their own sessions that can be attended as a standalone appointment, or often times works well in concert with a UIC 101 session. The following is a list of contacts for the undergraduate colleges that offer program specific visits.
