     Information Session
     Why Study Abroad?
Increased personal growth, language
proficiency, cultural awareness
Academic challenge and reward
Graduate school, career, & resume
enhancement: Less than 2% of American
college students actually study abroad,
which makes YOU stand out!
Travel opportunities
Meet new people, make new friends
Don’t let the experience of a lifetime pass
you by!
    Why Study on EAP?
The Regents of the University of
California have recognized the need to
incorporate an international experience
into your UC degree.
EAP is part of UC. You are not taking
time off, but maintain your UCI status
while abroad.
UCI wants you to go
abroad!
       Will I get credit?
Yes!
 All course work abroad on EAP earns
 UC credit, not transfer credit.
 Courses and grades are listed on your
 UCI transcript.
 Courses taken on EAP can fulfill
 major, minor, and/or breadth
 requirements. Make “normal”
 progress towards your degree with
 careful planning.
         Can I afford it?
If you can afford UC, you can afford EAP!
  Students pay the SAME UC fees!
  In many cases the cost is comparable to
  studying at UCI.
  UCI financial aid goes with you abroad!
  Your financial aid is recalculated based on
  the budget for your program (includes
  airfare, pre-departure expenses, etc.)
  Special EAP scholarships help offset any
  higher cost.
   Is there support abroad?
Definitely!
 A Study Center Director (or designated
 UC liaison officer) administers the
 program and is responsible for the
 academic and personal well-being of
 EAP students.
