Filing Fee Petition
Filing Fee status may be requested when in the final stages of finishing the dissertation. While on filing fee students are ineligible to receive UCI financial support, can not enroll in courses, or use any University facilities. Filing fee may be paid in lieu of registration for only one academic quarter, and the student applying for filing fee status must have been registered in the preceding academic quarter. International students must obtain approval from the International Center.
Childbirth Accommodation Leave
Women graduate students in good academic standing who hold a TA or GSR appointment, and who expect to give birth during the academic quarter for which continued funding is sought, will be excused from regular duties for a period of up to six weeks immediately surrounding childbirth, without loss of financial support. Your appointment must be appointed for a minimum 25% for the entire quarter, and paid leave may not extend beyond the end date of the appointment.
