Graduate Orientation

As the academic year is about to commence, we encourage you to review and complete the Graduate Division Virtual Graduate Welcome and Orientation found here. Each module contains very important information regarding health insurance, financial aid, how to establish residency for our out-of-state and international students, and has important resources from various campus departments. Please be sure you review and complete the New Student Checklist before you begin the quarter.

We will be hosting the Graduate Dean’s Welcome where you will be able to grab a snack, meet fellow students, speak with Madhu Reddy, the Associate Dean for Graduate Affairs, the ICS Graduate Office, and supporting staff. The event will take place September 20th from 10:00 am - 1130 am at the quad of the Interdisciplinary Science & Engineering Building. We will be hosting in an open house fashion, so please feel free to stop by at any time during the above timeframe, and say hello and ask questions of any of the staff members at the tables. Please RSVP at the following link so we can assure your attendance.

Please take a look at the 2021-22 Admission and Registration Information, sent earlier this summer, that gives direction on how to sign up for classes, where to find the academic calendar, and more. If you haven’t had a chance to review it, please do so. As we transition back to campus, in person, we understand that it may be a bit overwhelming. Please be sure to visit the UCI Counseling Center Mental Health Care Package where you will find helpful resources on how to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please review the 2021-22 Payroll Information PowerPoint if you plan on holding an employment position (TA/RA). 

We’ve also highlighted some helpful videos below that can assist with the adjustment to being back on campus!
