Guidelines for EAP Students enrolled in the UCLA College of Letters and Sciences.
Once you have been accepted to EAP, your College records will be transferred to Honors Programs and from that point forward, you will receive all of your College related academic services, including counseling, through the Honors Office. Students MUST read the “ UCLA College of Letters and Science Guidelines” section below to make sure they meet the guidelines for the College of Letters and Science.
The Senior Residence Requirement states that 35 of the final 45 units completed for the degree must be earned in residence in the UCLA College of Letters and Science. A student who is enrolled in the Education Abroad program may satisfy the Senior Residence Requirement by earning 35 of the final 90 units (usually your 3 rd & 4 th yr) in residence in the UCLA College of Letters and Science. A student who completes final requirements for graduation while in the Education Abroad Program may satisfy the Senior Residence Requirement in the final 45 units preceding the student's entrance into the Education Abroad Program.
Coursework taken on EAP does not count toward Senior Residence.
All students need to complete at least 24 UD units in their major (excluding allied fields) in residence at UCLA.
Coursework taken on EAP does not count toward Residence in your major.
EAP course numbers do not correspond to those at UCLA. If you intend to use courses taken abroad to satisfy specific graduation requirements please consult the appropriate department for information on acceptable substitutions -- for your major, you will need to consult your major department; and for General Education, consult an Honors Programs counselor. Please be aware that you must be able to complete your EAP coursework and all degree requirements within your unit maximum (refer to your DPR).
If you will not be returning to UCLA and will be completing final work for your degree while abroad, please be aware that the posting of your degree could be delayed.
Grades earned in courses taken on EAP will be applied toward eligibility for Latin Honors ("Honors with the Bachelor's Degree), i.e. cum laude, magna cum laude, summa cum laude.
If you are a College Honors student, you may petition for a limited amount of honors credit for work taken at your host institution. As is the case with UCLA honors courses, in order to apply an EAP course toward satisfaction of College Honors requirements, you must earn a grade of "B" or better. In order to request review of a course (s) for honors credit, you must submit a petition with the Honors Programs office in A311 Murphy Hall.
If you entered UCLA as a freshman, you are eligible to apply up to 12 units from EAP toward your CH progress. If you entered as a transfer student, you are eligible to apply up to 12 units if no units were applied from your transfer institution. If 8 units from your transfer institution were applied to CH, you will be eligible to apply up to 4 units from EAP.
