Congratulations on joining the community of artists and scholars at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC)!  To help you have a smooth transition, we require all new students to attend a New Student Orientation. This event will help you become integrated into the academic, intellectual, cultural, and social environment and gain a better understanding of the academic and studio experience at SAIC.

Spring 2018 Orientation will take place on January 23rd and 24th. More details will be posted throughout the Fall semester.
