What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
Occasionally you will have classes that are easy going but most of the time classes are intense.

uic is academically challenging, but rewarding at the same time. professors there come from all sorts of backgrounds, with some possessing phd's from the likes of mit or harvard, so they know their stuff.

If you're a freshman, it definitely takes some getting used to if you're one to not study for tests, or go to the library to check out resources, and stuff like that. I'd suggest to put academics first; this is your education and you're paying for it so you might as well work for it. But don't try to do everything at once. Break assignments up into manageable parts and make things easier for yourself. Make a calender for due dates and work out a study schedule for each class.
