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.

Fall New Student Orientation will take place August 30-September 1.

SAIC's New Launch of Navigate

We’re excited to announce that SAIC will launch Navigate, a student engagement platform. Available for undergraduate and graduate students, Navigate connects students to people, places, and resources across campus and empowers students to chart a clear path to graduation. Through this personalized, interactive app, students can make appointments with Student Financial Services and Academic Advising, connect with a tutor at the Writing Center and find other resources on campus, easily view academic information, and stay on top of important dates and deadlines.

Stay tuned in early June for more information on how to get the app!
