There are a number of things you need to do to prepare for your start at UCR. Please see the list below for more information. Undergraduate students should also check their MyUCR account often.
Welcome to UCR! We are looking forward to seeing you on campus. As a new international student, there are several orientation sessions you will need to attend.
