Maintaining good health will be essential to your academic endeavors and quality of life at UIC.
Plan to bring copies of your health records (and the health records of family members who are accompanying you). It is important that you keep these records with other important papers so they will be available if health needs arise. All records should be in English. If necessary, please have them translated before coming to UIC.
