College and Major Advisors
If you have decided on a major and successfully completed 30 or more credit hours, you are assigned to a College or Faculty Advisor within your major by using the Find Your Advisor Application.
Students, Faculty, and Staff can find their Advisor by visiting Find the application.
Students: Simply log into the GetAdvisor with your NetID and password. Your advisor(s) name and contact information will be displayed.
Faculty and Staff: When you are in the application, go to the upper right hand corner and login with your NetID and password and then go to “Search Advisor By UIN” and type the student’s UIN.
First Time Users of the Student Self-Service
First-time users must obtain a University Identification Number (UIN) and Activation Token before accessing UI-Integrate Self-Service. You received two emails from Admissions one with your UIN and another with your token. If you have already claimed your NetID and set your password, you do not need to repeat this process.
- Request or Locate Your NetID and Password – you will need your University Identification Number (UIN) which was emailed on your Notice of Acceptance (and included in your admission packet).
Where to Get Help
For help with obtaining your Activation Token, contact the Admissions Office at (217) 206-4847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org For help with your NetID and Password, contact the UIS Tech Support Center (Help Desk) at (217) 206-7357 or email TechSupport@uis.edu (Hours of operation are 8:30 am – 5:00 pm, Monday-Friday). Due to FERPA laws, the help desk is only able to help continuing and prospective students with ID and password issues; they are not able to provide information to parents of continuing or prospective students.
