2020 International Freshmen Student Advising Online

School of Social Sciences | Undergraduate Student Affairs Office


This online academic advising is only approved for School of Social Sciences international freshmen (first-year students).

Welcome to UCI and to the School of Social Sciences!

Because we will not be able to hold an in-person orientation this year, we made videos of all the information we normally go over. There is a total of 5 videos, and they are quite long. But they are all important information that you will need to be a successful student, such as graduation requirements, policies, procedures, and deadlines. Please take your time watching the videos. There is a short quiz at the end, so take notes!! You can always pause, rewind, and watch it again!


Watch the videos.

To view videos full screen, click on each "Module" title

Module 1: Overview of UCI policies and procedures
Module 2: Graduation requirements

Please note that we do not work on Saturdays and Sundays. Any submission received after 3 PM on Friday will not be looked at until Monday.
