UCP students must demonstrate an advanced understanding of English language and have a strong academic foundation. Once you check with your home institution to find out which UCR courses are transferrable, choose credit classes from across all disciplines. Gain access to courses in over 80 undergraduate majors and 50 graduate programs.

UCP students can earn one or more certificates, depending on the length of stay and number of units taken.

Time to complete certificates is subject to number of units taken and course availability in each quarter.

How It Works

UCR Main Campus (Undergraduate and Graduate Level)

Courses are available in the sciences, humanities, and many other areas at both the undergraduate and graduate level in the daytime and evening.

  • Our College Advising office helps you create the best schedule, and ensures you have a full course load of 12 units.*
  • UCR is one of only three UC campuses with an undergraduate program in Business.**

*Students may not get into their first choice of courses, because availability may be limited.
