Dates and Eligibility

Program requirements are about helping you find your best match in a new academic setting abroad. As a University of California (UC) program, requirements are carefully set to ensure you can access as many programs as possible. At the same time, eligibility will help you narrow the choices and find a program where you can succeed and thrive. Here’s some basic criteria to start.

Are you…

  • a registered, UC student?
  • in good academic standing?

If you answered yes to both of these questions—good news! You meet the qualifications to apply to UCEAP. If you are unsure about some of these questions, check in with your advisor on campus.


The following are minimum requirements to participate in this program. Some requirements are set by the host country, the host university, or third-party providers. Most requirements must be met at the time you apply. However, you have until departure to meet class level and most language requirements. If you have questions, a study abroad advisor on campus can help.   

Citizenship Considerations

If you currently hold or have ever held Singaporean citizenship, there are important considerations for studying abroad in this program. The Singaporean government requires all male citizens and permanent residents over the age of 16 to register for military training. You may also be required to submit additional paperwork. Meet with a study abroad advisor on your campus if you fall into this category and are considering this program. The Singaporean Embassy can also provide more information.
