Hello New and Continuing Basel Students!

Below, you will see courses categorized by your year in the program. Please enroll in these courses using the 5-digit Course Registration Numbers (CRNs) listed in parenthesis beside each course. For those of you who have not registered at UIC before, you may refer these instructions linked below. 

UIC Registration Instructions

I strongly recommend that you follow the instructions for registering by CRN (Course Registration Number) rather than trying to manually look up the classes as it will be much easier. The CRNs are 5-digit numbers listed along with each course number. Please note that to be fully registered, you must enter all CRNs listed by each course.


If you are unsure whether you are a first-, second-, or third-year graduating student, please confirm with Theodore Davis.
