Undergraduate Academic Advising

UIC Engineering's Academic Resource Center provides academic advising and support for undergraduate students. We are located on the first floor of SEO toward the end of the south hallway. Undergraduate students are encouraged to make an appointment with the ARC staff whenever a check-in would be beneficial, but there are a few times during your UIC career when a visit to the ARC is required. See below for more information.

Most of the College of Engineering Undergraduate Affairs  offices will be working remotely on Monday and Friday throughout the semester with in-person availability from Tuesday through Thursday. 

When staff is working remotely, they are available via email and remote appointments.  Please check iAdvise to see appointment availability and/or email College of Engineering staff for assistance.

Important Advising Information Heading link

Faculty advising for the next term.

All engineering students must meet with their faculty advisor prior to registering for the next term. To ensure that these advising meetings take place, an “advising hold” is placed on each student’s record, and it will not be lifted to allow registration until the student and advisor have spoken.  Faculty advising week is generally the 10th week of the current term and information regarding Faculty advising week is sent out in the weeks coming up to Faculty advising week.

Students should follow the instructions set forth by the department in which they are majoring to make an appointment with their advisor. Undeclared majors whose last names begin with A through G should make an appointment with Elena Diaz at (312) 355-5899 or Undeclared majors whose last names begin with H through Patd should make an appointment with Estherine Morgan at (312) 996-5331 or  Undeclared majors whose last names begin with Patel through Z should make an appointment with Letreurna Owens at (312) 996-9529 or

Appointments typically are made during the ninth week of the current term, and the advising meetings themselves take place during the 10th week. Failure to see an advisor during this time may result in a delay in registration.
