We offer various academic programs for English as a Second Language through the School of Extended Education and Global Conferences through the School of Business and the School of Education.

The University of Riverside is approved by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement through the Student and Exchange Visitor Program (SEVP) to issue I-20™s to its International students.SEVIS is an internet-based system that is used to maintain accurate and current information on non-immigrant students/scholars (F, M & J) visas and their dependants. SEVIS allows schools and the U.S.Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) to exchange data on the visa status of international students/scholars. On July 1, 2002 the INS implemented SEVIS with voluntary enrollment from schools. University ofRiverside has been participating in SEVIS since May 2009.

University of Riverside is committed to success of students desiring to pursue higher education. We recognize that each student is different in their motivation to learn which may affect their commitment to completing their degree. In recognition of this fact, we commit ourselves to student success and assign a mentor to each student while they are enrolled at the University of Riverside.

Our goal is to provide excellent academic experience to our students. This is why the university motto is Strength in Excellence.
