COE New Student Orientation

Welcome Spring 2024 students!

Congratulations on being admitted into the College of Engineering. To ease your transition to UIC we have outlined a variety of resources you may need to reference, beginning most importantly with the orientation process. We hope that you find this information useful as you begin your transition to UIC.

Advising in the College of Engineering Heading link

All Engineering students have two types of advisors in the College. One is your Academic Resource Center (ARC) Advisor also referred to as your COE College Advisor and the other is your Faculty/Department Advisor within your major department. Your ARC advisor is assigned to you when you are first admitted into UIC.

However, your Faculty/Department Advisor will be assigned to you during the 10th week of your first semester at UIC. The 10th week of each fall and spring term is considered Faculty Advising Week for the College of Engineering. All continuing Engineering students will have an advising hold placed on their account that will prevent registration for the following term. Students will be responsible to reach out to their major department to schedule an appointment with a Faculty/Department Advisor during Faculty Advising Week. This will be an ongoing process until the student graduates.
