Do NOT enroll in any classes at UCI for any quarter you will be abroad. Note for UCEAP participants: Each quart prior to the fee payment deadline the Study Abroad Center will enroll you in a 16-unit UCEAP placeholder course. This ensures that you retain your status at UCI, continue to be eligible to receive financial aid, and receive credit for your completed coursework upon return from UCEAP. The classes you actually take abroad will replace the UCEAP placeholder course once your UCEAP classes are reported to the UCI Registrar. Final units and grades received while abroad on UCEAP will be posted to your UCI transcript within 90 days of your official program end date.
Do NOT pay registration fees to UCI for any quarter you will be abroad.
Do NOT apply to graduate for a term that is before the conclusion of your study abroad program.
DO pay any unpaid bills at UCI (library fines, lab fees, housing fees, USHIP Fee, etc). Check your Zot Account online before you go abroad to make sure you do not owe any money to UCI. Pay any outstanding fees to UCI, including USHIP if you do not typically waive out, before the fee payment deadline.
DO enroll in classes for the quarter you plan to return to UCI from abroad. You will need to access the Schedule of Classes (SOC) and enroll in classes via the UCI web site. You can view the SOC and find out when your enrollment window opens beginning 7th week, and registration begins 8th week of the preceding quarter. See the Registrar’s Course Enrollment web page for more details. Look at the Calendar to see when your enrollment window opens.
DO pay your fees to UCI for the quarter you plan to return to UCI by the fee payment deadline.
