Scheduling advising through iAdvise Heading link

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
  2. At the top of the page, select the Advising tab
