Lifelong Learning

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, alumni auditing is paused through Spring 2021.

After you receive your degree from the Merage School, your education doesn't have to stop. Both the School and the University offer programs that allow alumni to expand on current knowledge and add skills in areas not yet explored.

Beginning Fall Quarter 2017, there are new options for MBA alumni course enrollment (“auditing”).

The Merage School offers course enrollment privileges for all UC Irvine MBA alumni in good standing, in select MBA elective courses. Please note that core classes are not open to alumni. Course availability is based on: approval by the program offices, space availability and classroom dynamics.

There are two levels of auditing; please note on your application which level you want. For both options, alumni are responsible for purchasing any textbooks and/or other course materials (either through the university or on the open market), lab fees (if required) and payment for parking while on campus. Enrollees are subject to the same campus and classroom policies that apply to all enrolled students.

  1. Class access only (free). If approved, this will only grant you a seat in class. Electronic access to course material, a grade or transcript credit will not be provided. Online courses are not available for this option.
  2. Formal course enrollment. ($500 fee). Enrollment will grant you:
    • A letter grade and course credit on your transcript (making classes eligible for corporate reimbursement programs)
    • Access to course material on EEE and Canvas
    • Options to audit online and hybrid courses

Informally “dropping in on” classes is not permitted. All alumni must register, no later than the posted deadline.

The above policy and procedures are subject to change without notice.

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, alumni auditing is paused for Spring 2021. This is an unprecedented situation, and the primary focus is adapting our students to a fully online delivery. Check back on this website for updates. Please note that schedules, once posted, are subject to change, and space is limited. Please do not contact the professor or show up in class without filling out an application and receiving advance permission. Thank you.
