Both the School and the University offer programs that allow alumni to expand on current knowledge and add skills in areas not yet explored.
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.
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.
