Get Registered with a Dedicated UIC DRS Counselor!

The Illinois Department of Human/Rehabilitation Services (DHS/DRS) is the Illinois' lead agency serving persons with disabilities. DRS counselors work one-on-one with individuals with disabilities and their families to empower them to reach their employment, education, and independent living goals. This means DRS can provide resources and support well beyond what UIC DRC can offer! Previous UIC students working with DRS have been approved for tuition assistance, purchase of technology, assistance paying for personal care attendants, assistance finding employment, and more!


The Disability Resource Center at UIC has worked with the Department of Rehabilitation Services (DRS) to secure DRS University Counselors dedicated to serving UIC students with disabilities and providing them with registration assistance and support!
