Graduate Student Listserv

The Graduate College set up a graduate student listserv (gradlist@uic.edu) for the Graduate College to post timely announcements. Another function is to facilitate communication and discussion among students across disciplines. Users may post about anything within reason. You are encouraged to join.

To subscribe

  • using your UIC email account (yournetid@uic.edu), send an email to listserv@listserv.uic.edu
  • in the body of the message type: subscribe gradlist first_name last_name (replacing your name for "first_name last_name")


If you would prefer to receive a digest (usually once a day, if there are postings that day) of emails

  • using the email account that is subscribed to the list, draft an email to listserv@listserv.uic.edu
    • you must send the above email from the email you originally used to subscibed to the list, which is either your offical "yournetid@uic.edu" email or your official UIC GMAIL email.  Sending the command from an email address which is not on the subscription list (e.g. the email account you may have forwarded your offical UIC address to) will not work.
    • if you have forgot the password to your UIC email, visit the Academic Computer and Communication Center's Password Changing Utility web-page
  • leave the subject header empty
  • the body of the message should have the following command: set gradlist digest
