VISIT GUIDELINES for Program Providers or Partner Universities

Welcome to UCI!

UCI’s Study Abroad Center is the main contact for UCI students interested in opportunities abroad such as the UC Education Abroad Program (EAP), UC Summer Abroad, UC Davis Quarter Abroad, and the International Opportunities Program (IOP Study & IOP Non-Study).

If you are from an UCEAP partner institution abroad, you should contact the Study Abroad Center for details on how to plan your visit.

If you represent an institution, program or organization that is not part of UCEAP, read below for details on how to promote your international program(s).


  • We hope you can help us reach our goal of sending 20% of UCI students abroad prior to their graduation by 2020! When visiting our campus or connecting with our students, be sure to highlight the below as UC Irvine students often choose IOP programs that offer:

    • locations or opportunites beyond UCEAP with potentially less stringent eligibility requirements (GPA, class level, etc.)
    • program costs comparable to UC with the opportunity to receive grants & scholarships
    • experiential learning and/or a community/cohort feeling
    • shorter time frames (summer, quarter or semester)

  • If you would like UCI students to become familiar with your program(s), we suggest the following:
    • Register to attend our Go Abroad Fall Fair on Thursday, November 2, 2017! If you did not receive a personal invitation to attend, please provide the following information to to our event coordinator, Chrystal Fairbanks:

      • Organization Name
      • Address
      • Phone # (main line preferred)
      • Email (organization e-mail preferred)
      • Website URL
      • A brief description of the services you offer
      • Fair Contact - First & Last Name, Title, Phone #, Email

    • Host an info booth on Ring Mall anytime throughout the year! Contact our Student Center & Event Services liaison, Sarah Prom, to arrange an information table in the Student Center Ring. We recommend submitting your request at least 10 days prior to your visit. The cost to book is $70.00 (includes space rental, table, & chair for as many dates you'd like during a given month).
    • Make sure your organization is listed on popular search engines for international programs like: IIE passport,, and Our office uses these online tools and our Program Comparison Worksheet to encourage students to choose the program that best fits their needs and goals.

  • Due to staffing limitations at this time, UC Irvine's Study Abroad Center is not:

    • accepting new affiliations or requests to establish partnerships
      (i.e. development or implementation of custom design or faculty-led programs)
    • able to accommodate or arrange meetings between IOP Providers and our staff and/or other faculty and staff on campus
    • able to arrange information sessions and/or tables on your behalf

    However, if your organization has worked with UCI's Study Abroad Center in the past and has undergone significant changes that impact how we might advise our students, please let us know by contacting the appropriate regional staff advisor(s).

We appreciate your patience and understanding and look forward to sending our students on your program(s)! To ensure UCI students are connected to UCI resources such as credit, financial aid, and more while on your program(s), be sure to have all of your UCI applicants visit our office to receive details on the UCI IOP Pre-Departure process.
