  • Absence from UC Davis in quarter prior to Quarter Abroad Program
  • Contact the Office of the University Registrar and Study Abroad immediately if you plan to PELP (Planned Education Leave Program) or to take a leave of absence in the quarter prior to your departure. In order to maintain your status as a UC Davis student you will need to become familiar with the campus leave of absence policy and PELP forms. You may not be on PELP status while on UC Davis Quarter Abroad. 

    If you are not enrolled or present at UC Davis in the quarter prior to your participation in a Quarter Abroad program, it is your responsibility to be in contact with the Faculty Leader and the program coordinator regarding all pre-trip meetings, deadlines, materials, etc. 

  • Prerequisite Information
  • If you do not meet the prerequisites at the time of enrollment you will be required to complete a "Supplemental Contract." The Supplemental Contract is an agreement to complete the prerequisites prior to the program start date. Supplemental Contracts are sent after you submit your enrollment and it is processed by our staff, and will not affect your initial spot in the program. 

You can find more information on enrollment and other important subjects in the Study Abroad Student Guide. Please feel free to contact our office with any questions or concerns.
