Meet with an Advisor

Schedule an Advising Appointment

The Study Abroad Office offers a variety of advising appointments to help you navigate the study abroad process. Once you have attended a First Steps info session, you can meet with a member of our team to receive personalized help in selecting a program that fits your academic, professional, and personal goals.

Connect with one of our advisors to learn more about your options for studying, interning, and participating in research abroad! Our advising is currently being offered virtually for the foreseeable future.

To meet with an advisor, log on to my.UIC.edu and visit the Advising Tab. Click on iAdvise and you will go to your Success Network. Search for “Study Abroad” in the search bar to make your appointment or scroll down to our advisor profiles to schedule an appointment directly.

Please note that, due to the evolving nature of COVID-19, many specific program details for Summer 2021 and beyond may not yet be available. The Study Abroad Office staff is still available to meet with students to provide general advising about finding a program, the application process, funding resources and more.
