CS Advising

Computer Science Advising Team

  • Who is my advisor?

    See the notations below each advisor’s photo above to find yours.
  • Is advising required?

    All COE/CS students must be advised each semester (fall and spring) to remove the advising hold and register.
  • How do I schedule advising?

    All advising appointments are scheduled through iAdvise. See the section below for specific instructions.

Scheduling advising through iAdvise

All advising appointments are now scheduled through iAdvise.

Advising holds will only be removed with a scheduled advising appointment. There are no advising hold removals via walk-ins.

Look for an email from your advisor referring to “Mandatory Advising” to see when you are scheduled to make an appointment. All emails are sent to your UIC email address.

Note: Don’t miss emails from your advisor! Add a filter to approve emails sent from your advisor’s name so you don’t miss important messages.

Here are instructions for how to schedule your advising appointment in iAdvise:

  1. Log into my.uic.edu
  2. At the top of the page, select the Advising tab
  3. Select iAdvise (if the iAdvise icon is not on your page, simply type iAdvise into the search bar)
  4. Select ENGR Advising
  5. Click the Engineering College Advising link on the side
  6. Select your advisor’s name
  7. Find a time that works!
  • Online or on-site? The mode of advising (in-person or online) for fall 2021 has not been finalized, and we are monitoring health guidelines to make an informed decision.

  • Don't forget No advising = Advising hold not removed = You cannot register!

CS advising FAQs

Please note:The mode of advising (in-person or online) for fall 2021 has not yet been determined. The computer science department will make an informed decision based on city, state, and federal health guidelines. We will most likely continue to do advising via Zoom, but we may add in person appointments if health guidelines permit. Watch this page for further information as the semester unfolds.
