Check your email daily
Check your UCSC email account daily for changes or EAP updates. Important pre-departure information, sometimes with attached documents, will be sent to your UCSC email address from UCSC Programs Abroad, the UCEAP Systemwide Office, and possibly from your host institution abroad. It is your responsibility to check your email daily, to follow instructions, and meet all deadlines. Check your junk mail and reconfigure your filters! Keep all EAP-related emails in an email folder labeled EAP.
EAP Next Steps
Once you have been notified via email of your selection to EAP, follow the Next Steps outlined in the official acceptance letter attached to the email. Keep the letter in your EAP email folder for reference.
Welcome to EAP Video
This mandatory video covers important information on your responsibilities as a selected student. If you have been officially selected for participation in an EAP program, then this video is for you.
EAP Pre-Departure Orientation
This mandatory group orientation is a place where you can meet other students going abroad, talk to returnees, make sure you're on track with your pre-departure responsibilities, and share information with your peers. EAP participants studying abroad in the Spring or Calendar Year 2014 will attend an orientation in November 16, 2013 (invitations have been sent to selected students). All students attending the orientation are responsible for preparing an Info Sharing Topic.
If you are going abroad and missed your Pre-Departure Orientation, then you are responsible for completing a self-guided orientation below. Please contact email@example.com for further instructions on what to do if you missed your Pre-Departure Orientation.
Think about Finances
If you still have questions about how much financial aid you will receive when you go on EAP, and how much money you will have to save up, check out Financing Study Abroad
Think about Housing
Need to sublet while you're abroad? Want to find on- or off-campus housing after your return from EAP? Check out the California Housing Bulletin, or UCSC Housing. Students interested in finding their own accommodations in the off-campus community are encouraged to use the resources available through the UCSC Community Rentals Office. Community Rentals maintains online rental listings and serves as an information and advising resource. Download applications for UCSC housing. If you are interested, or want to learn more, contact a housing coordinator.
