Student Success Coordinators (SSCs)
Student Success Coordinators collaborate with faculty to support students identified as requiring additional assistance for course-specific academic success. Meeting with a SSC is a positive step in achieving academic success. Any student who feels they need additional support may also directly reach out to their Student Success Coordinator for assistance and resources.
We offer free tutoring for many classes at both the bachelor and graduate levels. The tutors are current UIC students who excel in their programs and are able to dedicate time to tutoring others. Tutoring can be face to face, over the phone, through Skype or email and may be accessed by students at all campuses.
Use the link below to request a tutoring session. You will be asked to log in with your standard UIC credentials. If you do not receive a response within two business days, please email Lynn Ortiz.
Open Skill Lab
Our Clinical Learning Resource Center (Schwartz Simulation Lab) is located in the lower level of the College of Nursing and is available to you throughout the week for unstructured lab time. If you would like to have more time practicing skills outside of your assigned lab time, please use the link below to sign up. You can also email Lynn Ortiz if you have any questions. Think about getting a group of your peers together and come to the lab!
CLRC & Student Success Program Information Course Site
All prelicensure students and selected graduate student courses across campuses are added to our Blackboard course site. In Blackboard (under the CLRC information tab) you will find more information about our programs, events, study strategies and university resources. If you are enrolled in this course, please take some time to review this content available to you!
