Top Tips for University of California Applicants

Posted in Perspectives

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

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

 

1. Send official test scores to just one UC campus

It'll be shared with all campuses where you've applied.  One exception: IELTS test scores must be sent to each campus. Note also that AP/IB scores are not required at the time of application review.


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. Don't send transcripts or academic records

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


4. 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.


5. 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.
