Advising

Your success matters to us!

All advising has transitioned to online. Please go to iAdvise or contact your faculty advisor to schedule your virtual appointment. As a student in the College of Applied Health Sciences (AHS), you are assigned an academic advisor.  Your advisor wants to see you and help you with balancing your academic, professional, and personal needs. You can easily schedule an appointment or email them with any of your questions. Additionally, we try to provide as much advising support online as possible to work around your busy schedule.  If you have questions about where to go for advising support, please contact Student Affairs for help.

Schedule an advising appointment

You may make an appointment with your department advisor by signing in at my.uic.edu, under the “Advising” tab. Students with faculty advisors may reach out to their faculty advisor via email or the preferred scheduling method outlined in the advisors listing below.

Drop-in/ same-day advising appointments are available for our larger programs and are designated for students currently enrolled in those programs.  Information on how to drop-in with your advisor  may be obtained by logging into iAdvise through your portal  and identifying your assigned advisor in “My Success Network” on the days and times listed below.

General questions suitable for drop-in/same-day advising may include:

  • Individual course drop questions
  • Term withdrawal concerns
  • Pre-health educational goal discussions
  • Career and major exploration
  • Study abroad interest
  • GI bill, good student insurance and other quick forms that may need completion

Required advising appointments (probation, mid-semester check-in, two-year or four-year registration planning, etc.) cannot be completed during drop-in advising hours.
