The Mathematics Department has provided information for students participating in the UC Education Abroad Program (UCEAP). Students participating on other study abroad programs should contact the department directly for more information.

Study Abroad Questionnaire
- Is there a specific time frame in which students are required to declare a major in your department? If yes, when?
We encourage students to declare as soon as they have finished their lower division prerequisite courses (Math 1A, 1B, 53, 54, 55). Students may also declare while enrolled in the fifth prerequisite course as long as the other four prerequisite courses are completed with adequate grades. The complete declaration policy can be found here.
- Does the undergraduate adviser sign the UCEAP academic planning form, or must a faculty adviser sign?
Staff advisers sign the EAP forms, but faculty review acceptable courses upon return.
- Should students make an appointment to have their academic planning form signed in your department? If so, do they need to bring a transcript or any other supplemental materials with them to their appointment?
Intended majors should bring a transcript. We will have a major file set up if they have already declared.
- What is the maximum amount of major credit given for courses taken during UCEAP? Is this maximum calculated by number of courses or by units of credit?
We allow up to four upper division courses from another university if appropriate to the requirements. (i.e. required course equivalency or elective)
- Are students in your department able to undertake a senior honors thesis the semester following UCEAP participation?
Students can do honors thesis following EAP
- Does your department calculate UCEAP grades into departmental GPA?
Yes, if the course is used for a major requirement.
- Are UCEAP grades counted towards departmental honors?
Yes, if counted as one of 8 required upper division courses.
- If you represent a department which teaches foreign language, does your department award major credit for the courses taken during the Intensive Language Program (ILP) portion of the UCEAP program?
- Does your department distribute a special information sheet for your majors which includes advice on how to articulate participation with UCEAP with the major?
- Does your department place Academic holds on declared majors prior to each registration period? If yes, what is your departmental policy on releasing advising holds for students currently abroad on UCEAP (e.g. is advising possible via email, skype, etc.)?
Yes, holds will be placed on declared Math majors. In order for the department to release the holds, students must reach out to one of the undergraduate major advisors to inform them about their proposed schedule for the following term.
