Message from Chancellor Gillman
Welcome to the 2019-2020 academic year at the University of California, Irvine. I speak for all of us on the faculty and staff when I say how pleased I am that you and your student are members of the Anteater family.

Admission to UC Irvine is highly sought after, and being a member of our student body is testament to your student's hard work and impressive achievements.

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.  Non-compliant students will receive secure messages from Student Health Center advising them of their compliance status. New, incoming students should immediately take the following actions if not already completed:
  1. Log on to the Student Health Patient Portal.
  2. On the homepage, select Medical Clearances from the menu:
    1. Enter the dates by clicking "update" for each vaccination that you have already received.
      (Note: Please complete the Medical Clearances even if you have not completed ALL immunizations.)
    2. Complete the TB Risk Screening Questionnaire Form.
    3. Upload your Immunization and TB records.
      (Note: You may upload additional documents at a later date, as you obtain them, by clicking on "update" next to the Immunization Records section.)
Special immunization clinics will be held at the Student Health Center starting the week of September 23 through October 25 to accommodate any students who still require immunizations and/or TB testing following the start of the fall quarter. Students may call 949-824-5304 to schedule an appointment.

After the deadline and after academic holds are placed for Winter Quarter, non-compliant students will still have an opportunity to complete the requirements and have the academic holds removed. However, the delay could adversely impact class availability and enrollment.
Thank you for your support and cooperation!  
Parent & Family Coffee Socials

All UCI parents, family members and alumni are encouraged to attend! Whether you are a new parent or a parent of a senior, all are welcome.

Is your city missing from the list ? If so, contact the Parent Engagement team if you would like to host in your area and your city will be added to the list!

Fall Career Fairs: Opportunities for students seeking jobs
Tuesday, 9/24 - 11a.m.-1p.m. in Aldrich Park
All positions are paid part-time jobs either on-campus, within 5 miles of UCI or on the campus shuttle route
Wednesday, 9/25 - 10a.m.-3p.m. in the Bren Events Center
Positions include volunteering with non-profits, internships, part-time and full-time jobs
Three reasons your student should attend the early fall career fairs:
  1. No pressure to skip class or fear of running late... more time to engage with employers
  2. Greater diversity in the types of employers and positions offered
  3. Easy to find parking
Prepare for the Fairs 
In addition to attending robust summer workshops, students can prepare for the fair by completing their Handshake profile and preparing or enhancing their resume.
