Daniel Gonzalez II
Sorry is education part of chass?
No, Education is in it's own school.
Hi, my major is pre-business. Am I in the right place?
Are you in Business Prep?
Are you presently in Pre-Business?
Are you a current student?
Will you give me your SID?
Please send it only to me.
how do I know which webinar I should join there is three of them
What major are you?
You are in the wrong session. This is for CHASS students.
I am a 2021 Fall transfer, and my SID is 862288233
where do I go
I applied as Business Administration, but got accepted in as Pre-Business.
You are actually in Business Administration as Business Prep.
Yes, pre-business is part of the college of humanities, so you’re in the right place, here’s the link if you need more info https://chassstudentaffairs.ucr.edu/pre-business_program/
Thanks, I should be in the Business Administration Zoom?
The business admin major is part of the school of business, you may need to speak to your advisor once assigned
Are you talking about the transfer Fall orientation?
It's not posted yet. You may go to chassstudentaffairs.ucr.edu
You will be able to register for orientation at a later time, you get to choose out of the times the provide
Hi Kendra - yes, well ask her to clarify
If we register for the Mentorship program, do we do the bucket list every semester?
The mentorship program is only one quarter. So you only do the bucketlist once.
Oh so it's quarter not semester okay.
in regards to the language requirement, does 2 passing years of a foreign language in high school count?
No. You will need to take the placement exam at UCR. Hopefully, you will test out of the requirement. Granted, if you have an IGETC, then you will have met your breadth.
Will this fall be online or in person?
At this point, the majority will be in person. There will be some courses online.
With a letter of reciprocity( Uc Merced to UCR) will I meet the breadth requirements that IGETC does?
Zoom user (You): What is the difference between a semester and quarter?
Semester is 16 weeks and UC quarter is 10 weeks plus finals week
Will we be able to register take Summer classes?
Will there be the option for online classes in the Fall 21?
Yes, a letter of reciprocity will meet UCR's breadth.
Semesters are typically 16-ish weeks whereas quarters are shorter 1o-ish weeks
Good to know thanks
Is it delay to add a major or minor to study once you transfer in Fall 2021?
Thank so much for letting me know.
When I asked, technically yes, you may take summer classes (example summer 2021) but it will not be covered by financial aid. It is an out of pocket cost
You may talk with the other major or minor when after you matriculate.
Thats fine (not being covered). Will I be able to talk to an advisor on which classes I should take?
Summer classes, that is
I would wait until you get to UCR to add double major/minor, because most have requirements before you can petition
On the chass website it will have a 2year plan for your major
Hi I am a out of state transfer student. I have not received my acceptance letter by mail yet? Is it just online due to covid this time? Thanks
when will fall classes start?
What is campus living like ? As a transfer student do you recommend the campus apartments or dorms?
Did you live on campus when you transferred?
If you want to know when classes start or the deadlines, you want to go to the academic calendar. registrar.ucr.edu/calendar
Do we need to take a placement exam if we are transferring with an IGETC?
No. You don't need to take the placement exam if you have an IGETC.
If we want to stick with our 1 major, is it required for us to get another/double major or a minor?
No, you do not have to declare a major or a minor.
Where did you guys live when you first transferred?
How’s the parking lol?
Many transfer students rent.
Parking has gotten better.
Can we declare a History major? What does it mean for us to "declare" in the CHASS program?
Are you in the History major?
I am a History major who has been admitted to UCR
Then you will go to the History department for advising.
Where I can find a counselor who can help me to choose my classes?
The parking typically charges per quarter.
MSJC represent :)
It depends on your major.
I am art history major
Does CHASS do academic advising for history majors?
Do they have a grace period for parking like by such and such date you have to have a parking ticket by then? Or do we have to purchase it way before attending
Is for Spanish major
If you are an Art History major, you will meet with the art history advisor to discuss requirements.
Reusable/scannable planners are the best
In regard to parking, you should contact the parking department.
All of our departments at UCR have fabulous websites with info...anytime I need info...I Google...…."UCR Parking"...…"UCR CHASS Advising"....."UCR Housing"
You may find out who your advisor is by going to chassstudentaffairs.ucr.edu and clicking on 'Advisors, Majors, and Minors. Click on the down arrow and it will give you the information about each major.
Can we meet with our advisors before orientation so we know sort of what we want to register for ahead of time?
For parking by goin to transportation.ucr.edu
Ya'll are so awesome thank you for answering my questions and speaking about your experiences
Hi Gabrielle, We haven’t received the acceptance letter by mail. Is this something we can look forward to or it’s just the email this year? We also reached out to admissions by email and call .. we haven’t heard yet? Please let us know.. thanks.
Hi Sujay, I'm not sure of the deadline for the acceptance letter. I suspect there will be an email this year. You were correct in reaching out to Admissions via email and by phone. What major are you?
Will there be a mentor to help us learn how to register?
Ernesto Mejia Jr.
This is a great point.
Academic Advisor's are the helpful people for registration
At the transfer orientation, you will register with the help of your academic advisor.
Thank you :)
if you already took a foreign language at a CC do you still need to take one at UCR?
Are we allowed to leave now since it's 4:11pm?
It depends on the level of For. Lang you've completed at the CC.
we would love for everyone to stay but if you need to leave, please do. Thank you for attending today!
I took spanish 1, aka elementary spanish
would that be good enough or would i still need to take another spanish class?
It depends on how many units you will get for the foreign language when they review your transcript
it was a 5 unit class
You have met a portion of the FL req.
what is the req. #?
Should we talk to an advisor before or after we attend orientation?
If you have a BA, then you need 4th quarter level and if you have a BS, then you need the 3rd quarter level. Your acad. adv should be able to help you with that.
Great info Ryan!
Thank you guys so much for taking the time to put this together
Hello! (1) I am transferring fall 2021, however would like to take classes in the summer at my community college. Since we aren’t able to speak to our academic advisors until after orientation, how can I figure out what classes will count toward my major requirements (equate to UCR requirements) since the course names vary? (2) I got accepted into the B.A. Sociology major. How can I switch to a B.S.?
Will there be a way to access this recording later?
I definitely want to access these resources
I am exactly like Brenda. I want to apply to medical school, too.
Jonah S Myers
This Recording will be added to the Highlander Day Website in about a Week
Gabrielle, my daughter is out of state transfer student, she got accepted for fall 2021 psychology major. We did receive an email on April 16th 2021. But not a physical letter by mail? So was curious to understand. She is at work and wanted me to follow up.
Thank you, Jonah :)
Chelsea - all of the major requirements and articulation agreements are available at www.assist.org. You should be able to discuss with your CC counselor the courses at your current institution that will transfer to UCR.
In regard to changing from a BA to a BS you may request this in the Fall with your Academic Advisor.
UCR WAS MY TOP CHOICE!
I believe most of the communication will be done electronically, but I don't know if you will also receive via the mail.
Thank you! I learned a lot from this webinar! Go Highlanders!
