UCI 2016 Welcome Week

Take a look at the festivities during last year's Welcome Week.

Welcome to your new home!

Learn more about becoming an Anteater and preparing for your first day.

  • Welcome to UCI

    In October 1965, when the University of California, Irvine, opened its doors and held its first classes, our founders had the ambitious goal that one day this would be a world-class university. Today, that vision is realized in myriad faculty, student, and alumni achievements that are illuminating new possibilities in our state and around the globe.

    UC Irvine is consistently among the world’s best universities, with national rankings and achievements in the sciences, arts, humanities, medicine, and management. Three UC Irvine professors have won Nobel Prizes for their contributions to the advancement of human knowledge. Our alumni have won Pulitzer Prizes and Olympic medals, and are leaders in business, the arts, science, and education. In all walks of life, graduates from UCI make a difference.

    Our campus has all the advantages of a large, dynamic research university, with many opportunities for students to be involved in undergraduate research. By the time they are seniors, 91 percent of UCI students have participated in faculty research. And with the circular layout of our campus surrounding beautiful Aldrich Park, our tight-knit community thrives with the friendly feel of a small college. Our academics and community combine to create an exceptional undergraduate experience.

    UC Irvine draws students looking for world-class faculty, cutting-edge academic programs, award-winning housing and facilities, a vibrant campus life, and the opportunity to live and study among the best and brightest minds in academia.

    UCI is the ideal place to study the past, enjoy the present, and shape our future. I invite you to explore all we have to offer and to challenge yourself to shine brighter.


    Sincerely,

    Chancellor Howard Gillman

  • The following information will guide you through the process of accepting your offer of admission to UCI. Log into your MyAdmission account for specific details and be sure to regularly check the Message Center.

    International students are to complete the steps for All Students in items 1-7 as well as the steps specifically for international students that follow.

    All Students Are Advised To:

    1. Read your contract and submit your Statement of Intent to Register (SIR).

    Your SIR and nonrefundable $250 Statement of Intent to Register deposit (if requested) is the key to reserving your space at UCI. The freshman SIR deadline is May 1, 2017 or the date specified on your admission letter. The transfer SIR deadline is June 1, 2017 or the date specified on your admission letter. Submit your SIR online via MyAdmission.

    2. Submit your Statement of Legal Residence (SLR).

    The information you provide on your SLR is used to determine your residence classification for tuition fee purposes. The freshman SLR deadline is May 1, 2017.  The transfer SLR deadline is June 1, 2017. Submit your SLR online via MyAdmission.

    3. Submit your Housing Application if you plan to live on campus.

    In order to submit a housing application you must have submitted a positive SIR.  The freshman deadline to submit a housing application is May 1, 2017. The transfer deadline to submit a housing application is June 1, 2017.

    4. Submit your official transcripts and test scores.

    Official final high school and/or college transcripts, as well as all official final test scores such as SAT, ACT, SAT Subject, AP, IB must be sent to the UCI Admissions Office. All transcripts must be received by July 1, 2017; all AP/IB test scores must be received by July 15, 2017. If you are attending summer session, an official transcript is still required by July 1 showing all coursework through spring 2017. Official college transcripts for any courses taken during summer 2017 must be sent to the UCI Admissions Office and received by September 15, 2017.

    International students are encouraged to request official transcripts early because it may take some time for schools outside of the U.S. to send your official transcripts to UCI. Failure to provide official transcripts may jeopardize your enrollment.

    (Note: students who did not attend four years at a high school in which the language of instruction is English must submit official test scores for an exam that clears the English Language Proficiency requirement by July 15, 2017. Click here for means to clear this requirement.)

    Mail official transcripts to:
    Office of Undergraduate Admissions
    University of California, Irvine
    260 Aldrich Hall
    Irvine, CA 92697-1075

    5. Take placement test(s).

    Many important courses require placement test results in order for freshmen, and in some cases transfer students, to register. In particular, writing courses often require a test result for registration. Placement testing is offered between June and September and is coordinated with Orientation dates. Visit the Academic Testing Center website to obtain information about tests, testing dates, and a guide to which placement tests you may need.

    6a. FRESHMEN - Attend Student-Parent Orientation Program (SPOP) or International Student Orientation (ISO).

    New student orientation is mandatory for all freshmen. Please note that if you are an international student, you may choose from two orientation programs.

    The Student-Parent Orientation Program (SPOP) is a two-day-one-night orientation for new first year domestic and international students offered multiple times between mid-July and mid-August. Academic advising, course enrollment, campus tours, social activities, and meeting current and new UCI students are included in the SPOP experience. SPOP also includes an optional parent/guardian component for an additional fee. A Spanish language parent program will be offered at least once during the summer.

    For international students who are unable to attend SPOP, we offer the International Student Orientation (ISO); a three-day-two-night program that offers many of the same elements as SPOP, but is tailored to the unique needs of international students who have little or no experience in the United States. ISO is offered once in September.

    While ISO is an option, international freshmen who attended high school in the U.S. are strongly encouraged to attend SPOP if they are available.

    In order to enroll in classes for fall quarter, you are required to attend orientation. If you are unable to travel to Irvine during the summer to attend an orientation program, you must request an Orientation Exception. The Orientation Exception Request Form will be available online when your orientation reservation window opens. The date and time of your reservation window will be sent to you via email in early May.

    Please visit the orientation website for more information.

    6b. TRANSFER STUDENTS - Meet with your Academic Advisor and attend Transfer Success or the Transfer Student-Parent Orientation Program (TSPOP).

    Meeting with your academic advisor is required to enroll in courses. Please contact your advisor to schedule an appointment.

    Transfer Success is a one-day orientation program specifically designed for new students transferring to the university. The program will be offered twice in July; attendance is optional, however we hope you will join us! Our goal is for your transfer experience at UCI to be positive and enriching, academically and socially.

    At Transfer Success you will be able to meet in an informal setting with other new transfer students and also interact with currently enrolled UCI students.

    TSPOP is a two-day-one-night program for transfer students interested in a more comprehensive introduction to the university. TSPOP includes all the elements of Transfer Success plus a wide range of informational workshops and opportunities to make friends with new and continuing UCI students. TSPOP is also optional and will take place once during the summer.

    Transfer Success and TSPOP do not include academic advising. All transfer students are required to make an appointment for academic advising with the school of their major. Appointments will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Reservations for Transfer Success and TSPOP will begin in late May. Watch your email for information on the date and time reservations will open. To register for Transfer Success or TSPOP and to obtain program details visit the Orientation website.

    7. Pay fees.

    Check your ZOT account online to see your registration fees and other charges, as well as any financial aid, waivers or payments credited to your account. Be sure to pay the amount due by the fee deadline to avoid late charges and dropped courses.

    International Students Are Also Advised To Do The Following:

    8. Upload your Confidential Financial Statement (CFS) with signatures and dates, and financial documents.

    The freshman deadline to mail the CFS is May 1, 2017; the transfer deadline to mail the CFS is June 1, 2017. Processing of the I-20 will be delayed if the CFS and financial documents are postmarked after the deadline. If you do not need to apply for the I-20, proceed to step 10.

    You will need an F-1 student visa to study in the U.S., if you do not have a visa status that allows you to attend school in the U.S. The I-20 will allow you to apply for the F-1 student visa. If you are already in the U.S. with F-1 student visa status, you must request an I-20 from UCI.

    Go to your MyAdmission account to access the CFS. Follow the instructions, print the entire CFS, obtain required signatures with dates, and upload the signed CFS and any financial documents, including current bank letter/proof of funding at https://apply.admissions.uci.edu/register/cfs.

    9a. If you live outside of the U.S. and need to obtain an F-1 student visa you must also:

    1. Check the mail for your I-20 visa document. Once your CFS, financial documents, and passport biographical page have been received and verified as complete, the International Center will process your I-20 visa document.

    2. Apply for the F-1 student visa. Students without an F-1 visa need to apply for one. After you receive your I-20 visa document, you may apply for an F-1 visa. Visit the U.S. Department of State website.

    9b. If you are currently in the U.S. and have an F-1 visa you must also:

    1. Request an electronic release of your SEVIS record from your current school to UCI. Students with an F-1 visa currently in the U.S. must follow the instructions on the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS) Record Transfer to UCI form.  The form is available on MyAdmission and on the International Center website. Note: Failure to follow the instructions will delay the processing and mailing of your I-20.

    2. Check the mail for your I-20 visa document issued by UCI. Once your CFS, financial documents, and passport biographical page have been received and verified as complete and your SEVIS record has been released to UCI from your current school, the International Center will process your I-20 visa document.

    9c. If you live in the U.S. and plan to change to F-1 visa status you must also:

    Plan to travel outside of the U.S. for an F-1 visa or you must file a change of status application with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

    10. Complete iNavigateUCI.

    As a new F-1/J-1 international student, you must complete the International Center Visa Check-In process at the start of fall quarter. iNavigateUCI is the International Center’s electronic visa check-in process and it is required for all new international students; it is used to report your arrival to the Department of Homeland Security and to “activate” your SEVIS record. For more information, click here.
