For Winter and Spring quarters 2021, all instruction will remain online. Students will be unable to enter the U.S., but can continue to study with UCR University Extension from the comfort of their own home. We have temporarily suspended the issuance of I-20 forms until we are able to resume face-to-face instruction. At this time, students can apply for our professional certificate and Online University Programs for Winter and Spring 2021 quarters.  Download Informational Flyer
