You will hear from a student panel and receive a campus tour, and be able to attend college specific sessions, as well as presentations about financial aid, UIC’s Honors College and the Guaranteed Professional Programs Admissions throughout  the morning. Register

UIC 101

Offered most weekdays and on select Saturdays, each visit program is approximately 2 hours in length.  Each program begins with a presentation by the Admissions Office and then guests have the opportunity to interact with current University students during a student panel, take a student-led walking tour of campus, and visit a University Residence Hall. Register

Self-Guided Tours

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. Register
