Helping you to achieve academic success!

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (LAS) is proud to be the academic home to thousands of first-generation college students – students who are one of the first in their families to attend a four-year college or university – just like you!

We recognize your commitment to higher education and the hard work you put forth to enroll at UIC. First-at-LAS celebrates your many accomplishments and contributions to our community. We are excited to offer programs, resources, and materials that will enhance and enrich your LAS and UIC experience.
