We offer Freshman Seminars to UCI students in fall, winter and spring quarters of the academic year. Faculty teaching these seminars receive a research stipend of $1500 per seminar. All current Senate Faculty are eligible to teach Freshman Seminars. We will consider a maximum of one application per instructor per quarter. We ask that you submit a copy of your tentative syllabus when you apply or shortly thereafter. Your syllabus can be uploaded with the below application or emailed to . Should we receive more applications than we are able to accommodate, your syllabus will help us make our selection. In addition, we will take into consideration the range of disciplines being offered each quarter and the total number of seminars you are applying to teach in 2023.

  • April 15 for Fall Quarter Seminars
  • July 26 for Winter Quarter Seminars
  • December 15 for Spring Quarter Seminars
