UCI email can be checked via the UCI Gmail interface, UCI Webmail website, or through other software. Instructions for setting up UCI email are available on the OIT website. By default, as of Fall 2012, new users are only provided UCI Gmail accounts. Instructions for changing your delivery point are on the OIT website. For further assistance, contact the OIT Help Desk.
Learn about email quotas
UCI email accounts have a quota capping the maximum disk space available for saved messages and other content. If you are close to exceeding your quota, you should receive an email warning. If you have already exceeded your quota, you will be unable to receive new messages until you free up space or request additional space, which can be made available in limited circumstances. For further assistance, contact the OIT Help Desk.
This only applies to UCI's Webmail service and not UCI Gmail. UCI Gmail has a separate quota system.
Open/save Zip files
A Zip file can be used to compress one or more files, reducing the total file size. Zip files can be used in several EEE tools, so EEE provides a general (by no means comprehensive) Help & How-to guide.

The i>clicker Audience Response System allows instructors to instantaneously gather responses to in-class questions from large numbers of students via each student's wireless transmitter.
Learn about Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
If you need to connect to campus-restricted resources from off-campus, Virtual Private Network (VPN) may be the solution for you. VPN allows you to connect to on-campus-only resources such as the JSTOR Scholarly Article Archive or restricted class websites from off-campus by encrypting the information you are sending over the network, which also protects your data.

Turnitin.com is a web-based plagiarism prevention and detection tool. Student work is checked against a database for any matches between submitted papers and any internet content or previously submitted work.

Turnitin.com is not affiliated with or integrated into the EEE website; please refer to departmental contact info for more information (see below)

Instructor classes — added by the department
Department schedulers enter instructor information in the Electronic Schedule of Classes (ESOC).
There are several ways a department scheduler can list a person in ESOC and these different listings have limitations:
EEE automatically updates as soon as new ESOC data is received:
Assistant classes — usually added by the instructor, but may be added by the department
Instructors can add assistants and (optionally) limit their access to specific tools using EEE Assistants. Assistants are added on EEE immediately. If assistants are given Rosters access, they will also get access to the University Registrar's WebRoster within 24 hours.
Sometimes department schedulers add assistants as instructors in ESOC, which gives the assistants full access to all EEE tools.
Assistants' access to tools is only controlled through EEE by instructors, not by department schedulers.
The University Registrar and UCI Summer Session send enrollment information directly to EEE.
Students can access EEE tools for officially enrolled classes. This does not include audited or wait-listed classes, though a list of wait-listed classes is shown for the first two weeks of Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters.
Get final grades
Official, final grades are distributed via the University Registrar's Student Access.
Some instructors and assistants post interim grades through EEE GradeBook. Grades posted in GradeBook are not official.
Readmission to UC Irvine
Readmission to UC Irvine after graduation or other absence of one or more quarters is not guaranteed. Any former student wishing to return to UC Irvine must first file for readmission. For assistance, contact the University Registrar.
Find class locations with RoomFinder
You can use EEE's RoomFinder to find out where your classes are located. You can view a building map, photo, or both side by side. RoomFinder also has a complete index sorted by building number, building name, abbreviation or grid on main campus map. Instructors, assistants and students can access a "My Classes" tab and view their class locations for each day of the week.
You can access RoomFinder by clicking on the building and room number of your classes under the MyStudentClasses, MyAssistantClasses, or MyInstructorClasses module on your MyEEE page.
Build class websites
Instructors and authorized assistants can build or link a class website for any course they are teaching and which is offered through the University Registrar.
Find class websites
Instructors and authorized assistants can build or link a class website for any course they are teaching and which is offered through the University Registrar. Class websites are optional; some instructors and assistants build them, while others do not, so not every class will have an associated website.
Learn about final exams
The quarterly final exam schedule is maintained by the University Registrar. EEE synchronizes with the Registrar's Schedule of Classes to display final exam dates and times in EEE Calendar as well.
Learn about employee and student ID numbers
Employee ID Number
An employee ID number is assigned to each person employed by UCI. If you are an employee, you will need your employee ID number to activate your UCInetID, which allows you to access online services, such as EEE and UCI email.
Your employee ID number can be found on your staff ID card. You can also check with payroll personnel to get your employee ID number.
Student ID Number
A student ID number is assigned to each student at UCI. If you are a student, you will need your student ID number to activate your UCInetID, which allows you to access online services, such as EEE and UCI email.
Your student ID number can be found on your ID card. To obtain an ID card, visit The Hill (formerly the UCI Bookstore).
Your card serves as your source of identification on campus, and it is important to have it with you at all times. If you lose your card, get a replacement through The Hill.
EEE Help & How-to includes detailed step-by-step guides for each EEE tool from the instructor & TA, student, and staff perspective (where applicable), as well as documents on other popular topics.
