Diplomas

  • How do I fix a mistake on my diploma?

    Return the diploma to the Registrar’s Office (2249 Student Services Building) to have the error corrected. Make sure to check in at the Highlander One-Stop Shop (HOSS) first.

  • How will my name appear on my diploma?

    Your name on your diploma will be printed as your full legal name as it appears on your student record. To view the name on your diploma, go to View Application to Graduate in the Academic History icon of R'Web. If you want your new name to appear on your diploma, make your name change request before the last day of finals during your graduation quarter.

  • I completed a double major. Will I receive two diplomas?

    It depends. Double majors within a single college are reflected on a single diploma. If one of the majors normally results in a Bachelor of Science and the other in a Bachelor of Arts, the diploma reflects the degree of Bachelor of Arts and Science. However, a CHASS student who earned a BS and BA will receive two diplomas.

  • When can I get my diploma?

    Diplomas for all students are available approximately four to six months after the degree award date. You will receive an email when your diploma is mailed. Make sure your permanent mailing address in R’Web is current.

Resident Status

  • Am I eligible for the AB540 nonresident tuition exemption?

    Domestic students who, for various reasons, are classified as nonresidents, as well as undocumented students, may be eligible. An example of a potentially eligible nonresident domestic student is one who attended a California high school for three or more years and graduated from one, but parents did not live in California or later moved away.

    Students who met in-state criteria and then established residency in another state, but are now returning to California to pursue a graduate degree, may also be eligible for the tuition exemption. The exemption applies to both undergraduate and graduate students.

    Graduate students must provide an official high school transcript to the Registrar’s Office. Undergraduate (freshman and transfer) students may provide an official high school transcript as well; however, we will attempt to obtain a copy of it from Undergraduate Admissions.

    Most importantly, all students must complete their SLR (Statement of Legal Residence) online before sending us any documents.

  • How is residency determined?

    After you submit your online SLR, we will review it and make a determination. If we need additional information or documents, we will contact you via your personal email, prior to July 1. After July 1, all emails will be sent to your UCR R’Mail account.

  • I am a resident because I’ve lived here all my life. Do I still need to fill out the form?

    Yes. Every student must submit the online SLR, regardless of where you have lived or how long you have been in California. The only exception to this is if you log in to your MyUCR account, click the “Statement of Legal Residency” link and see the California bear flag badge. If you see this, you do not need to complete the form as you have already answered the required questions on the UC admissions application.

  • I am now a resident. How do I change my status?

    If you want to be classified as a resident, you must petition in person at our office. All status changes must be initiated before the first day of classes for the applicable term. Our office is located on the second floor of the Student Services Building, Room 2249. For in-person service, students should start at the Highlander One-Stop Shop (HOSS) on the first floor of the Student Services Building. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

  • My residency was classified incorrectly, what do I do?

    If your resident status was classified incorrectly, you must immediately notify the campus residence affairs officer (reshelp@ucr.edu). If you were incorrectly classified as a resident, you are subject to nonresident tuition. If you concealed or gave false information, you may be subject to university discipline.

  • SIR vs SLR

    The SIR is your “Statement of Intent to Register.” It indicates that you are planning to attend UCR. The SLR is your “Statement of Legal Residence.” It indicates your resident or non-resident status. You can only submit your SLR after you have submitted your SIR. See Residency for Tuition Purposes for more details.

  • What is the Statement of Legal Residence (SLR)?

    The SLR is how you declare your residency status when you first come to UCR (as a freshman, transfer or graduate student) or when you return after a significant break (longer than three quarters). You submit it along with your Statement of Intent to Register.

    Additional documentation may be required to prove your status. You have until the end of the applicable term to provide it. Freshmen and transfer students who have submitted their Statement of Intent to Register will be able to access the SLR via their MyUCR account. Graduate students will receive a packet from Graduate Admissions.

    See Residency for Tuition and Fee Purposes for more details.

Miscellaneous

  • How do I calculate my GPA?

    First, calculate grade points by multiplying the value (V) of an assigned grade by the unit value (UV) of the course (grade points = V x UV). The grade point average (GPA) requires two sums: the sum of all the grade points earned for the term you are calculating (quarter points [QPTS]) and the sum of all the letter-graded units attempted during the term (quarter hours [QHRS]). To determine the GPA, divide the quarter points by the quarter hours (GPA= QPTS/ QHRS).

  • What is considered a “business day”?

    Any day our office is open for business is considered a business day. Non-business days are Saturday and Sunday, holidays and administrative closure dates. Enrollment verifications take five to seven business days to process.

  • What is the difference between a Term Plan and a Course Plan?
    Term Plan: 

    You create a Term Plan prior to your assigned time ticket (registration) to make enrollment easier for you. Get step-by step-instructions for creating a Term Plan here.  

    Course Plans (Four Year Plan): 

    A Course plan, or Four Year Plan, is assigned to you and is designed to give you a road map to finish requirements and graduate in four years. Learn more about Course Plans here

FERPA

  • Can I access my student’s medical and/or counseling records?

    Not necessarily, unless it is an emergency. However, your student may be able to grant you access via specific release forms. Questions about medical records should be directed to the Campus Health Center and questions about counseling records should be directed to the Counseling Center.

  • Does UCR have a blanket release form?

    UCR does not have a blanket release form covering the release of all student information to you. Release forms are generally very specific and students may be required to fill out department-specific authorization forms each time they request information be shared with you.

  • What records can authorized users see in R'Web?

    Students can tailor what is seen by selecting the appropriate areas of self-service at the time the authorized user account is being created. This includes granting permission to speak with Financial Aid, Housing and/or Student Business Services about their account. Students must also give access to CashNET for access to view and pay the bill.

Graduation

  • Can I access R’Mail after I graduate?

    You may want to forward your R’mail to a personal email account so that you don’t miss your diploma notice or other important UCR communications. However, your R’mail and R'Web account do remain active and accessible after you have graduated.
