Study Abroad Questionnaire
- Is there a specific time frame in which students are required to declare a major in your department? If yes, when?
Students can declare when they have met the necessary pre-requisite courses as stated on our department's website here and have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher.
- Does the undergraduate adviser sign the UCEAP academic planning form, or must a faculty adviser sign?
The undergraduate adviser signs the UCEAP academic planning form.
- 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?
It is recommended they make an appointment, but not required. Students may come during regular drop-in advising hours M-F 9am-12pm and 1pm-4pm and Wednesdays in the afternoon only, except Tele-BEARS advising periods (October and April each year). Students do not need to bring any other materials with them to this meeting.
- 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?
Maximum: 2 courses. The courses must be at least 3 semester units, and must be taken for a letter grade.
- Are students in your department able to undertake a senior honors thesis the semester following UCEAP participation?
If students qualify for the CNR Honors Research Program, they may participate in that as long as they have at least two semesters to complete that program.
- Does your department calculate UCEAP grades into departmental GPA?
- Are UCEAP grades counted towards departmental honors?
UCEAP grades are counted toward college honors.
- 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?
Not at this time.
- Returning UCEAP students who attempt to register through Tele-BEARS from abroad need adviser codes to pre-enroll for courses. What is your departmental policy on releasing adviser codes to UCEAP students?
Students should have completed an Adviser Code Release Form prior to departure for their program. Without this form completed, an adviser code will not be released over email/phone.
MEB students should email their major adviser with their planned courses for the following semester as soon as possible after the Schedule of Classes is released. The major adviser will review the coursework and respond with their adviser code.
