New Student Registration 2020

Welcome to SCS at Illinois!

Welcome to the School of Chemical Sciences (SCS) at the University of Illinois! We're very excited to meet you this summer and help you prepare for a successful academic career in Chemical Engineering, Chemistry, or CS+Chemistry. For the best new student registration experience, be sure to complete all of the tasks below at least one week before your scheduled appointment. We'd especially like you to complete the SCS New Student Orientation Course on Compass: this will help you learn more about your advisors, your degree requirements, what to expect in your first semester, and how to register for classes. If you are a new incoming first year student, you should have access to the orientation course already - just log in with your Illinois NetID and password! If you have any issues accessing the site, email Kimberly Powers at
