Welcome to Academics & Student Services!

The University of California at Irvine and the Department of Athletics has made a commitment to the academic progress of our Student-Athletes and we make every effort to provide a comprehensive network of academic and life skills support for the Student-Athlete's use in the pursuit of a degree. With the academic and life skills support programs offered within our department and the resources available on campus, student-athletes are capable of achieving their dreams and goals both academically and athletically.

We serve 400 student-athletes in 18 varsity sports. Due to the size of the department and the number of students we monitor, we as an academic and student services staff, can deal effectively with problems and come up with solutions rapidly while maintaining close contact with our student-athletes, coaches and professors alike. This flexibility allows an aggressive approach to providing services to our student-athletes, as evidenced by our Study Table and Grade Check programs.

The Academic & Student Services Office consists of four main areas:



  • Campus Academic Advisor
  • Academic Mentoring/Academic Sport Supervisor
  • Program Planning & Course Selection
  • Priority Registration
  • Placement Exams
  • Major Exploration
  • Graduate & Professional School Preparation


  • Orientation Programs
  • Study Table Program
  • FREE Departmental Tutoring
  • Learning & Academic Resource Center
  • Grade Checks
  • Class Conflict Letters
  • Scholarship Book Loan Program


  • Student-Athlete Computer Lab
  • Special Assistance Fund
  • Scholar-Athlete Banquet
  • Awards & Post-Graduate Scholarships



Please familiarize yourself with the resources available via our website. In addition, we encourage you to contact the coach specific to your sport of interest in order to set up an unofficial or official campus visit so that we as the academic and student services staff can meet with you in order to answer any questions that you may have regarding the support resources available to our student-athletes for their overall success.

We look forward to assisting you throughout your journey in selecting the right campus that meets your personal and family needs as a collegiate student-athlete.  And we hope that you will join in partnership with us as we connect you to all of the resources available to lead you on towards graduating from UCI and in pursuit of your personal and career goals.

We look forward to hearing from you.
