Connect with the UIC international community Heading link

Even after you graduate, the Office of International Services considers you to be an active member of the UIC international community. In fact, you may continue working with our office on your immigration status for one to three years beyond your time as a student at UIC if you decide to participate in post-completion Optional Practical Training or Academic Training. Whether you return to your home country or explore a future in the U.S., there are ways to stay connected.
