New Graduate Student Information

Congratulations on your admission to the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department!

Below are helpful resources to assist you in your future at BCOE.

  • Quicklinks
  • UCR NetID and Student ID

    Once you have provided the Office of Graduate Admissions with the information they need, you will be sent a final admission letter. 

    Both your UCR NetID and Student ID numbers are located on the top right corner of the letter. 

  • Registration

    New graduate students begin course registration in mid-August. The Graduate Services Advisor will email you with detailed enrollment and course planning information in advance of your registration deadlines. This will also be explained at the ECE Department Orientation before the start of the fall term.

    To avoid issues with your registration, you must make sure there are no holds such as financial or passport verifications. Read your final admission letter from the Graduate Division Admissions Office for details about any registration holds for final transcripts, degree certificates, or test scores.

  • UCR Email Account

    You can set up your UCR R’Mail account by going to iGuide for R’Mail for instructions.

    In addition to your UCR email account, you will be provided with an Engineering (ECE) email account. We will go over how to setup your ECE email account during the ECE Department Orientation. Once you become a registered student, the ECE email account will be the one the Department will use to send you any email correspondence including all events and student announcements. It is important that you check this account often.
