The Office of International Services recognizes that your transition to the University of Illinois at Chicago is multifaceted. You are not only beginning studies at a new school, you are entering a new country and culture. This experience can be both exhilarating and, at times, overwhelming! With this in mind, OIS has developed a series of customized orientation programs and arrival resources for all new international students entering UIC. Our goal is to support and enhance your transition by providing essential information about your immigration responsibilities, an introduction to the UIC community, an opportunity to meet other new international students, and much more.
