Reduced Staffing Days and Holidays

Our office will have reduced staffing during May 15-19, 2017).  Our Student Orientation Coordinators will be taking a week of vacation after finals week. Please be patient as it will take longer to return emails and phone calls.

UIS is closed on the following holidays: New Years Eve and Day; Martin Luther King, Jr Day; Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day Thursday and Friday; Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Our office may have reduced staffing during university semester breaks when Student Orientation Coordinators are not working.  This will impact our ability to respond to communications in a timely manner during Thanksgiving Recess (Wednesday, November 22, 2017) and Spring Break (March 12-15, 2018).

The Office of New Student Orientation & Parent Relations will be closed Friday, December 22, 2017 – Monday, January 2, 2018.  Please refer to our webpages for information about Spring Orientation programs. We will answer any calls and emails, and process orientation reservations when we return starting January 3, 2018.
