Welcome to UIC Summer Session!

Now that you are admitted, follow these instructions to make sure you are ready for registration.

The my.UIC.edu portal is your gateway to the university

You will use the portal to:

  • Check your registration “Time Ticket,” for the earliest date and time you can register for summer courses
  • Register for summer courses
  • Check your UIC email
  • View and pay your tuition bill
  • Check grades and request transcripts

Activate your account and UIC email

In order to access the portal, you need to activate your NetID, a unique identifier assigned to you. It becomes your login to the portal and also part of your UIC email address.

You will need to wait at least 24 hours after you complete the activation process before you can log into the portal.

If you’ve been admitted to UIC this fall and have already activated your NetID, you can skip the steps below. You are ready to register for your summer courses.

UIUC or UIS students, read these special instructions.

Step 1: LOOK FOR YOUR “STUDENT ACCOUNT ACTIVATION” EMAIL
You will need two things to get started: your UIN (University Identification Number), and your Token (and 8-digit code). Your Token is only needed once when you activate your account. You will need your UIN throughout your time at UIC so save this number for future reference.

The UIC Admissions Office will email your UIN and Token to you three days after you have been admitted to Summer Session. The email’s subject line will be “UIC Admissions – Student Account Activation.” If it’s been more than three days since you’ve been admitted and you can’t find this email, contact the Summer Session office.

Step 2:  ACTIVATE YOUR NETID
Once you have your UIN and Token, begin the process of activating your NetID. For additional assistance, read the NetID Activation Overview.

Step 3:  SET UP PASSWORD RECOVERY
You’ll be prompted to set up emergency e-mail and/or phone numbers in this step in case you ever need to recover your password. You’ll be glad you did if you ever forget your password later because it cannot be retrieved or changed over the phone.

Step 4:  ACTIVATE YOUR UIC E-MAIL
You will be prompted to activate a GoogleApps@UIC account for your UIC email. Your NetID becomes part of your UIC -mail address (NetID@uic.edu). While the Summer Session Office makes every effort to send you information to the email address that you provided when you applied, you will also receive important updates at your UIC email account so please make a habit of checking that account as well.

Step 5:  SET UP EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS

Enter the my.UIC.edu portal

Log into the my.UIC.edu portal 24 hours after you first activate your NetID.

  • On the left side under “Existing Portal users” select “login.” Log in using your NetID and password. If you encounter issues with logging in to the portal, please contact us.
  • Once you are in the portal, you will see the “My Home” tab where you can check your UIC e-mail, read campus announcements, and see the campus events calendar.

Check your Time Ticket to know when you register

Starting mid-March check your “Time Ticket” at my.UIC.edu to find out the earliest date and time that you can register. All Time Tickets are listed in Central Standard Time (CST).

  • After you have logged in, select the “Academics” tab, “Registration,” and then “Banner 8 Registration.”
  • Select “Registration Eligibility” to view your Time Ticket and to find out if you have any holds.
  • Once you confirm you have a Time Ticket, you can register for your courses.
  • Your registration obligates you to pay all tuition and fees for your courses.  Check summer tuition and fees to learn what you will be charged, your payment due date, and how to view your bill in the portal.

Make sure you receive your Summer Session emails

While the Summer Session Office will continue to email you a the address you provided when you applied, you may also receive important updates from the university at your new UIC email so please make a habit of checking that account as well. You can access it by logging into my.UIC.edu.

Note: Students do not have the ability to forward their UIC email to off-campus email accounts.
