EAP EXCHANGE PARTNERS PROGRAM
Information for Mentees
The Study Abroad Center's EAP Exchange Partners Program is offered to all EAP Reciprocity students who will be coming to study at UCI.
The program is designed to assist EAP Reciprocity students to adjust to life at UCI as quickly and smoothly as possible. Participating in the program will give you the chance to meet and become friends with a UCI student and to learn more about what to expect during your time here.
How does the program work?
- If you are interested in participating in the program, please apply here. Applications are due by December 14th. Please click on the "Start new submission" button after you have logged in to complete the application.
- Prior to the start of the quarter, you will be matched with a UCI student based on the information you have provided on your application. You will be sent information about the student to whom you are matched with via e-mail.
- There will be a meeting/social event during the first or second week of classes. This is where you will have the chance to meet your Exchange Partner and can make arrangements to get together. If you are unable to attend this meeting, please contact your Exchange Partner to make alternative arrangements.
- You and your Exchange Partner will agree where, when and how often you want to meet and your level of involvement with one another. You are expected to meet at least twice per quarter. Generally, your Exchange Partner will share their insights and experiences at UCI, explain how things work on campus and be available to answer any questions you may have.
Thank you for your interest in the program and please feel free to contact the Study Abroad Center if you have any questions at: email@example.com
