Top Tips for University of California Applicants (Class of 2022)

Posted in Class of 2022, Perspectives

ucWith the University of California application now open for submissions, it's time to make sure everything is in order.  

Here are six tips for freshman applicants, courtesy of the University of California:

 

1. Send official test scores to just one UC campus

Your official SAT with writing/essay, ACT with writing, SAT subject tests and TOEFL scores be shared with all campuses where you've applied.  One exception: IELTS test scores must be sent to each campus. Note also that SAT subject tests are not required but encouraged for certain majors.


2.  November/December test scores are acceptable

November and December exam dates are acceptable even though the application due date is November 30th. Just indicate your planned test date(s) on the application, then log back into to self-report your scores once they're received.  Be sure to request that the official scores are sent to one UC campus. 


3. Request an extension and fee waiver if affected by a recent natural disaster

If you've been affected by a recent natural disaster and are unable to complete your application by November 30th, be sure to request an extension and fee waiver.  Learn more here.


4. Don't send transcripts or academic records

They'll be requested if they're needed during the application review process.  


5. Don't send letters of recommendation

They're not required or read unless specifically requested. A campus will contact you via email if one is needed.


6. You can review and make minor modifications to your application after submission

You can log in to review your application after it's been submitted, as well as update your contact information and report new test scores.  You can also apply to additional campuses.  

Note: if you've changed schools or there are changes to your academic record, you must notify the UC Application Center by email or postal mail.  Click here for more information.

Keeping Vigil on 2017-18 Merit Scholarship Deadlines

Posted in Your College List, Class of 2022, Affordability

moneyIf you're in the hunt for merit scholarships, be sure to stay on top of explicit deadlines a school on your list might have.

In some cases, like Boston University and the University of Richmond, it's a hard deadline that you have to meet in order for you to be considered at all.  In others, like Indiana University and many other public institutions, it's a "priority" deadline that maximizes your chances of merit aid before the money runs out.  Either way, merit aid continues to be an excellent way for good students to defray the cost of an education.  

We've compiled a list of selected schools in our coverage universe with explicit deadlines, along with some stats to help you gauge the size and breadth of the institution's merit offerings.  We've also included links to each school's scholarship page for easy access to the details.

Most of these schools automatically consider you for merit scholarships without the need for an additional application.
