Advising in the Department of Computer Science Heading link

Our role as your CS Advisor is aimed to support you throughout your academic journey here at UIC through offering support, guidance, and recommendations for each students’ needs.

Your departmental advisor (Computer Science, Data Science, and Computer Science + Design) is assigned at the beginning of your first semester. In addition, you will be assigned an Academic Resource Center (ARC) advisor through the College of Engineering which we refer to as your COE college advisor. Both advisors are here to provide you with assistance. However, your departmental advisor will be focused more on course planning, mandatory advising, etc. whereas your COE college advisor will process many of your COE forms, certify your graduation, etc.
