PRIOR TO APPLYING

UCEAP:

IOP:

  • You are highly encouraged to meet with an Academic Counselor in the Bren School before applying to study abroad in order to plan out the best time to go.  Once you have chosen a program, you must submit your completed Pre-Application to the UCI Study Abroad Center. If at some point you find out the program does not fit your needs, you can complete a new Pre-Application for another program at that time.

UC Summer Abroad:

  • You are highly encouraged to meet with an Academic Counselor in the Bren School before applying to study abroad in order to plan out the best time to go.  After selection and if you wish for your study abroad courses to be evaluated for transferability, complete the steps as outlined on the Academic Planning Form.

WHILE ABROAD

  • If the courses you originally discussed with your Academic Counselor change, email an Academic Counselor to ask if other courses are likely to count toward degree requirements - attach course descriptions/syllabi.
UPON RETURN
  • Once your units are posted on your transcript, you may schedule an appointment with an Academic Counselor. You may have a petitioning process to follow in order to have the courses fulfill specific degree requirements. Be sure to save course syllabi, projects, assignments, papers and portfolios since it may be required in the petition process.


  • For students going abroad their senior year, usually you need to be certified for graduation at least one quarter after your return due to the time it takes for units to be posted to your UCI transcript. Please keep this in mind when applying for graduation.
