Letters of Recommendation
Not required of all UCEAP applicants, check your program checklist to see if it pertains to you.
Give instructors at least two weeks to write your letters.
Should be current and relevant to your study abroad plan.
Academic Planning Form
All applicants are required to complete this preliminary academic plan. It is subject to change due to fluctuating course offerings at your host institution.
This document is a plan of what courses you intend to take abroad. Meet with your academic adviser(s) to discuss which courses you should take abroad for your major/minor. PLEASE BE SURE TO FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS PROVIDED WITH THE ACADEMIC PLANNING FORM!
Allow for 3-4 working days for each signature.
If you are not declared yet, you must get this form signed by the department in which you intend to declare.
Departmental Pre-Approval to Extend (DPA)
If the DPA is required for your program, you will only turn it in if you are considering extending.
This form does not obligate you to extend. You can decide whether or not you want to extend once you are abroad.
Difficulties will arise if you elect "no" on this form, and then change your mind once you are abroad. Due to complications with visas, financial aid, academic approval, etc., it may NOT be possible for you to extend if you did not mark "yes" on this form.
NOT Required for all Programs.
Refer to your checklist to see if this pertains to your program
A clear and legible copy of your valid, signed passport is required with your application.
Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months past the end date of your program.
If you do not have a valid passport at the time that you submit your EAP application, you must submit the order receipt that you received from the post office when you applied for your passport/renewal. As soon as your passport is delivered to you, you must sign it, copy it, and submit it to our office. Failure to do this may result in withdrawal from the EAP program.
If you DO NOT have a passport, you must apply for one. Start by researching what documents are required for the passport application, and apply through a U.S. post office or at the ARC.
Need to Renew?
Renewing your passport: If your passport will expire prior to 6 months (for Russia, it is 9 months) past the end date for your program, then you must renew your passport.
Students with Disabilities
If you receive ANY assistance at UC Riverside, you may be able to receive it abroad as well! Speak to your SDC and to your UCEAP Program Coordinator EARLY to coordinate your needs with your UCEAP program. If you do not request accommodations early enough in advance, you may not be able to receive assistance abroad. Contact your advisers today.

Welcome to the UC Riverside-UCEAP Application tutorial. Now that you're thinking about studying with UCEAP, the University of California Education Abroad Program, here is a quick, painless tutorial to get you started with the application process.
For questions regarding these requirements please contact the Study Abroad team at email@example.com
Some UCEAP applications require an Essay / Statement of Purpose or Letters of Recommendation. If this is required for your application, it will be listed on the numbered top section of your instruction page.
The application essay/statement of purpose is used to evaluate your educational, professional and personal goals for studying abroad on UCEAP. Your statement should be thoroughly researched with regard to your host countries culture and details of your particular UCEAP program. Follow the guidelines below as well as any instructions in your checklist in regard to your statement
Letters of recommendation must be written by faculty or TAs with whom you have worked in an academic capacity (classroom, lab, discussion sections, etc.), at UC Riverside or a previous university or college. You may not submit work references. When requesting letters, be courteous of faculty workloads and allow ample time for them to write and deliver your letter. We suggest you allow at least 2 weeks for letters to be written. We also recommend that you arrange to pick up your letters in person to ensure you meet the deadline with a complete application. If faculty prefer to deliver your letter directly to our office, please ask them to make sure that we will receive your letter by the deadline. Letters should be written on the letter of recommendation form, or official departmental letterhead.
Must be on the Letter of Recommendation Form OR on official university letterhead (can be letterhead from a university other than UCR, unless otherwise specified on your application checklist.)
Make the appropriate number of copies as assigned by your application checklist
