The University of California, Irvine’s Division of Continuing Education (DCE) partners with agencies, universities, and institutions throughout the world to provide life-enriching academic, professional, and cultural experiences for international students at UC Irvine.

Become an Official Representative

UC Irvine develops relationships with select recruitment agents around the world who can effectively represent our programs to their prospective students. Through these partnerships, prospective students gain access to a respected institution that is devoted to education access and high-quality curriculum. UC Irvine’s Division of Continuing Education provides academic and professional programs for high school, pre-college, undergraduate and graduate students, and professionals.

If you find there’s a match between our programs and your client profile, please complete our Agent Application form.

Note: UC Irvine does not partner with agents to represent the University or to administer any part of the undergraduate or graduate admission application process. The engagement of agents or private organizations for the purpose of recruiting or enrolling international students is not endorsed by UC Irvine. Agents who may be retained by students to help with the application process are not recognized as representatives of the University and do not have a contractual agreement or partnership to represent UC Irvine. The Division of Continuing Education is the only department at UC Irvine that collaborates with recruitment agents.
