Student Parent Orientation Program: SPOP

All new freshmen are required to attend a Student Parent Orientation Program (SPOP), offered by UCI Center for Student Leadership. SPOP is a required 2-day, 1-night orientation for domestic and international freshmen that includes academic advising, class registration, information on important student resources and services, social activities, and lots of opportunities to make friends. Please visit the Orientation website for more information.

Freshman Edge participants are encouraged to enroll in certain SPOPs based on their Freshman Edge pathway. Please check back in spring 2019 for updated information regarding SPOP and Freshman Edge.

Please note that registration for SPOP is SEPARATE from Freshman Edge enrollment and must be completed with payment in order to reserve your space in SPOP. Instructions on how to register for SPOP will be sent via e-mail in May from orientation@uci.edu. Please see Enrollment for instructions on how to enroll in Freshman Edge.
