UIC Connect is a web-based system for admitted students, modeled after a web portal.
Originally intended as a recruiting tool for undergraduate admitted applicants, the project soon enlarged to include essential information all newly-admitted applicants would need in order to become familiar with UIC, navigate the many offices and procedures, and to successfuly register their initial term. Admitted graduate applicants were included in the scope of the project.
As the site is restricted by login to only admitted applicants, others can't view the material. Also, when a user logs into the site, individual data and messages are presented. Therefore, a mockup of the information on the site is presented below so that Directors of Graduate Studies and staff may become familiar with the information that the admitted applicants are viewing.
There are three large categories of graduate admitted applicant information: degree-seeking domestic, degree-seeking international, and nondegree. Currently, the information presented is the same except that:
- The degree-seeking international cohort has an additional link pertaining to information for international admits.
- The nondegree cohort has different registration and advising information, and does not have information on either financial aid or housing.
