All newly admitted Summer/Fall MS/LIS and MS/IM students are required to attend one of these sessions* (see additional sessions on April 18, May 10, May 25, June 5, June 21, and July 13 ). Students will learn about the technology used to deliver and participate in our online and on-campus courses, including the technology support the School provides to students. This session will also include information about program planning options (including academic advising and career services), ways to supplement your degree with experiential opportunities, and the student support services we provide. The second half of each session will have breakout sessions for MS/LIS and MS/IM students to discuss particular nuances for each degree.
*This session is supplemental to the required advising appointment you must have with your advisor.
Online orientations will be streamed via Blackboard Collaborate, and all times are CST. You will need your Illinois password to log in. If you have problems logging in, please contact our Help Desk for assistance.
