(Information for UCI advisors)
IUPP offers referred disqualified UCI international undergraduate students who hold F-1 visa status the opportunity to improve their performance in a supportive environment with the intent of achieving re-admission to UCI. The program provides a variety of benefits, including receiving English language tutoring/study skill workshops and taking undergraduate UCI courses through ACCESS that can later be transferred to UCI when the student is re-admitted. Study plans are individualized for each student.
- Be academically disqualified from UCI as a result of grades
- Demonstrate seriousness and readiness to complete degree at UCI
- Hold F-1 visa status
- Be referred by their UCI advisor and approved by the IUPP Re-admission advisor
- Have continuously enrolled in UCI classes
- Have not participated in IUPP Re-admission Program previously
Additional Program Expectations
- The UCI advisor or Student Services Office notifies the IUPP Re-admission advisor prior to the beginning of the following quarter regarding the students who are most likely to be disqualified.
- The student must need only a maximum of two quarters to meet the requirements for being re-admitted to the original/initial School.
- Students who wish to change their current major or who require meeting the re-admission requirements by enrolling in highly-impacted courses or courses that are not eligible for ACCESS are less desirable candidates for IUPP Re-admission, unless the UCI advisor can assist in the future course enrollment or arrange an alternate enrollment plan.
Initial Referral Steps for UCI Advisor (when disqualification from UCI is the final decision for the students)
- The student’s UCI advisor contacts the IUPP Re-admission advisor and provides details of the re-admission requirements for the disqualified student to return to the original School. If the disqualified student does not have the option of readmission to the original School, the UCI advisor should specify this and indicate the new major that the student hopes to pursue.
- Once the IUPP Re-admission advisor agrees that the Re-admission Program is an appropriate option for the student, the UCI advisor asks the student to contact the IUPP Re-admission advisor to make an appointment.
- IUPP Re-admission advisor confirms the student’s IUPP enrollment with the UCI advisor.
Program Intakes/Tuition & Fees
- Fall, Winter, Spring (Note: IUPP does not offer summer intake because students should be encouraged to apply to Summer Session directly, which only requires students to take at least six (6) units at any time to maintain F-1 visa status. Please note that online course units in Summer Session cannot be counted toward the F-1 visa requirement.)
- $12,750 tuition, plus $250 Student Services Fee and $585 Health Insurance Fee per quarter
Application Steps for the Approved Student
- Submit a completed IUPP Re-admission application, a copy of the current I-20/F-1 visa/passport, a copy of the bank statement showing $38,600 USD, and a $200 application fee to the IUPP office.
- Visit the UCI advisor to obtain a withdrawal approval (and UCI Cashier’s Office to apply for a refund of the tuition by Week Two of the current quarter)
- Bring the withdrawal form and the IUPP Re-admission acceptance letter to the International Center to be transferred.
- During the process, continue to attend all the classes and complete all the work as an enrolled student.
- Re-admission students cannot use many UCI support services, such as the Counseling and Career Centers.
- Re-admission students may not be eligible to continue in their current UCI housing.
- UCI students who are disqualified while they are traveling abroad during the break may not be able to come to IUPP Re-admission in the immediately following quarter. Students in this situation should contact the International Center to understand their options for returning to UCI when they are getting disqualified.
- International students on an F-1 visa cannot take UCI classes through ACCESS without being enrolled in a full-time program, such as IUPP Re-admission.
