Transition Coaching

Sophia & Paola

Successfully navigating a large university like UIC can be difficult for any student. To help make the transition to a 4-year university as smooth as possible, L@S GANAS Transition Coaches work with students at select high schools and 2-year colleges who are interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree.

Benefits for Students in High School and 2-year Colleges

Our Transition Coaches serve as personal guides on the college application process and help demystify the college experience. Students at partner high schools and 2-year colleges will receive coaching and mentoring support on:

  • Completing university applications
  • Identifying potential majors and areas of study
  • Filling out the FAFSA
  • Finding and applying to local, state, and national scholarships
  • Interpreting university financial aid forms

Benefits for UIC students

Once students decide to enroll at UIC, our Transition Coaches will work with them on:

  • Identifying academic, financial, and student life resources on campus
  • Connecting with other students who have similar interests
  • Staying updated on important deadlines
  • Keeping informed on the latest internship and scholarship opportunities
