PRIOR TO APPLYING
Undergraduate/Undeclared students must meet with an Undergraduate/Undeclared Academic Counselor after being selected for UCEAP participation. Once you know the courses that will be offered during the term(s) that you will be abroad, make an appointment to meet with an Undergraduate/Undeclared Academic Advisor. Bring to the appointment descriptions of the courses you plan to take while abroad – the Course List Worksheet can help you get organized. The advisor will help you determine which courses are likely to meet degree requirements. Call 949-824-6987 to make an appointment. Optional: Undergraduate/Undeclared students may meet with an Undergraduate/Undeclared Academic Counselor sooner, as needed, for advising.
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.
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.
