Registration 2021-2022

Every April, the Center for Student Involvement (CSI) is responsible for UIC's student organization registration process for over 460 student organizations.  Please go to the links and read the following information as we have made changes this year to simplify the process.  We have provided you a checklist and handouts to help your new or returning student organization to be successful at UIC in person safely or virtually.

All student organizations must RSVP for a REGISTRATION LAB via Zoom no less than 24hours prior to lab so we may activate your page in UIC Connection. Drop-ins are not allowed. (Drop-ins will have to RSVP for the next registration lab available). Some student organizations (ie. Fraternity & Sorority Life and sport clubs) may have a dedicated date and time, which has been pre-arranged with your advisor.  Please check your email soon for the date and time.

Registration Timeline:

  • April 1, 2021: Registration for the 2021-22 school year OPENS
  • May 16, 2021: The deadline for all corrections to be submitted.  Access to resources such as Involvement Fair, summer communication, and room reservations
  • Late Registration Process: If you have not attended a registration lab between April 1 to May 9th, please review the details here.
  • September 30, 2021: LATE Registration CLOSES for the fullest consideration and access to resources


What is registration? Registration is the process that keeps your organization’s details up to date and recognized by UIC Center for Student Involvement (CSI).

When do I have to be registered? For fullest consideration in the fall all organizations must be registered by September 30, 2021.

How long does the registration take? Once you’ve completed all the steps of registration, your registration still must be approved by CSI. This can take between 5-14 business days, so please prepare accordingly.

What happens if I don’t meet the deadline? Your organization will be “Frozen.” You won’t be recognized by CSI and you won’t have access to your student organization account until you complete the registration process.
