UC TB & immunization requirements for incoming students

Compliance deadline is October 25. 
Non-compliant students face academic holds.

All Fall 2019 incoming students who do not comply with the UC TB/Immunization mandate by the deadline date of October 25 will have an academic hold placed on their record preventing enrollment in Winter quarter (or Spring semester) classes.

Anteater Family Weekend is UC Irvine's annual gathering for alumni, parents and members of the whole family to connect with campus culture and celebrate community at UCI. We look forward to hosting you for two days of celebrations ramping up to the Homecoming festival and men's basketball game vs. UC Santa Barbara.

Standout resumes, professional internships & more
Instant Resume Review with VMock
Resumes are vital to landing a dream job, but many undergraduate students do not know how to showcase their education, skills and experiences.

VMock provides instant analysis and suggests edits for students to strengthen their resumes.

Micro-Internships with Parker Dewey
Workplace experience is crucial in preparing students for life after graduation, so the Division of Career Pathways has partnered with Parker Dewey to offer paid, micro-internships to current students. Micro-internships are project-based assignments that can be completed in 5-40 hours, usually between one week to one month.

Employers who offer micro-internships increase their recruiting pool while receiving immediate help with projects. Sample projects include:
  • Competitor prospecting
  • Data clean-up
  • Vendor research
