FLEAP Highlights

  • Since you’ll be taking UCR classes, there are no additional steps to have your international courses count toward your degree or major.

  • Get to know your professor ahead of time or opt to take a course with a professor you already know.

  • Programs offered in the summer, so you can earn credits faster.

  • Earn 8 units of UCR credit by successfully completing two courses.

  • Learn in a small classroom setting, with a maximum of 30 students.

  • Take UC Riverside General Catalog coursestaught by UC Riverside faculty.

  • Take 8 units to be eligible for summer financial aid. If you are a visiting student, check with your home campus about financial aid.

  • While courses have a maximum number of students, they do also have a minimum. Check back often to make sure your classes are offered.
