Admissions: Faculty & Staff

The Admissions section covers the admissions requirements and process for students. Additional information for faculty and staff is provided below.

After making a decision to recommend admission, the Admissions Committee Chair must submit an Admissions Committee Recommendation (ACR) form to the Graduate Division, along with the offer letter to the student; the letters of recommendation; and the student’s academic transcript(s). Social Security numbers, if they appear on transcripts, must be redacted.

In order to view applications to your respective program, admissions committee members and program staff need access to the DAVAD (Download And View Applicant Data) system. This system allows downloading and online viewing of applicant data for your program’s applicant pool. To access graduate applicant data via DAVAD, you must have a UCInetID and password, which is used to authenticate you. (Please note that GATS users may not need access to the DAVAD system.)

The Graduate Division offers the following two training sessions during the fall quarter, in preparation for the upcoming admission cycle:

Graduate Admissions and Enrolled Student Services Training

This workshop is designed to familiarize new and continuing graduate admissions staff with the admissions process from application submission to admission by the department. An overview of the enrollment processes and procedures is also given.

Evaluating Foreign Credentials

This workshop is designed to familiarize new and continuing graduate admissions staff with the various aspects of evaluating foreign academic records to determine admissibility to UCI.

Graduate Division staff are also available for individual consultation regarding the admissions process and policies, foreign credential evaluation, appropriate documentation, and other relevant issues.
