*Special Notes Details:

SQ Start = Indicates spring semester programs that start in spring quarter and end sometime in the summer.

Limited Space Rolling Admission = Applications for these programs will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis (using the submission date & time in UCIAbroad), until the program is full.   It is imperative that you submit a complete application in both UCIAbroad and MyEAP in order to be considered.  After applying, you will receive an email notification about your nomination into the program within two weeks after you submit your application. Given that space is limited on this program, we recommend having a back-up program in mind in case we cannot accommodate you in your first choice program.  If we cannot place you in your first choice program, we will contact you with next steps on applying to your back-up program. Physics summer applicants will receive an email with the option to remain on a wait-list for their first choice program. Once a program is full, it will be notated in the UCI Application Deadline column above.

Limited Space Fixed Deadline = Nomination into a program is determined by the number of applications submitted by the deadline date plus a combination of major fit, GPA and class standing. Preference will be given to applications that are fully complete.  Given that space is limited on this program, we recommend having a back-up program in mind in case we cannot accommodate you in your first choice program.  If we cannot place you in your first choice program, we will contact you within two weeks of the program’s deadline with next steps on applying to your back-up program. Once a program is full, it will be notated in the UCI Application Deadline column above.

Deadlines and application process vary by program. See your program’s information for details.
