Admitted Students

Welcome to the UIC College of Education!

We're excited to welcome you to our community of educators and leaders! The College of Education is here for you every step of the way of your college journey.

Please follow the instructions below to get started:

Getting Started with Orientation & Registration

Access your online orientation at Use your UIC NetID and password to log in. The online orientation consists of different modules focused on support services, campus safety, college policies, student life, and academic information. The modules must be completed in order, but do not have to be done in one sitting.

Students should also complete their required placement tests. This can also be done by logging in to and clicking on the “UIC Connect” tab.

Please complete the New Student Orientation Advising Form, which will help guide advising and registration. Completing this form will prompt an email with your orientation next steps.

Once students have completed the online orientation modules and required placement tests, they will receive follow-up communication (to their UIC email address) within two business days. That communication will contain instructions on how to access the virtual academic advising and class registration sessions.

Students will receive weekly email communication throughout the summer to their UIC email about programs for new students and their families. These programs will provide opportunities to connect with university resources, support services, campus departments, other new students, and the 2020 Orientation Leader team.
