CS Advising

Computer Science Advising Team

  • Who is my advisor?

    Check your Academic Network page in iAdvise to find out which of the four team members above is your advisor.
  • 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!
  • We're online! The CS department has moved all academic advising appointments online via Zoom for now. For the correct Zoom link, please refer to the "Mandatory Advising" email sent by your advisor.

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