New Student Advising & Registration

Student group discussing

Congratulations on joining the UIC and LAS community!

We are excited to welcome you to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. We know you are ready to take your first steps on your UIC journey and we are here to help. New Student Advising and Registration looks a little different for new first-year students and transfer students, please use the corresponding tabs to navigate to your next steps.

Generally, New Student Advising and Registration offers:

  • An introduction to a LAS academic advisor who will support you throughout your time as an LAS student
  • An opportunity to better understand placement test results
  • An opportunity to receive first-semester course recommendations
  • Support registering for your first semester classes (for First-Year students) or assurance that your course registrations are correct (for Transfer students)

Transfer Student Preparation Checklist Heading link

Incoming transfer students are eligible to register for courses starting on April 15, 2024 For the best course selection, it is strongly recommended that you register for courses as soon as possible.  Please do not wait until speaking with an academic advisor to register for classes. You can book an individual appointment with an advisor, and there they will make recommendations based on your enrollments and ensure you are enrolled in the correct courses for your major, plan, and credits.

First-Year Students Preparation Checklist Heading link

Incoming first-year students are required to participate in the LAS New Student Advising and Registration program to register for courses. Be sure to complete required placement tests and online modules as soon as possible to be able to sign up for New Student Advising and Registration.
