Applicant’s Remorse

Discovered errors after you submitted your UC Application? Be careful of the conflicting information the UCs are giving out on how to update/correct the application. Below is what I know and I’ve noted any conflicts I observed.

You may log back into the application and update/correct the following information:

  • Personal information
  • Release authorization
  • AP, IB, and international exams/scores
  • Add a campus (if available)
  • Freshman applicants – ACT, SAT, SAT Subject, TOEFL, and IELTS tests/scores

You may also:

  • Pay for your application online
  • Review your submitted application
  • Check your application status (to find out if your UC Application has been forwarded to the individual UC campuses; freshman applicants – find out if you are ELC)
  • Transfer applicants – update your application in January

For all other corrections, such as for the “Academic history,” “Activities & awards,” and/or the “Personal insight” sections, you must submit those AFTER you have set up an applicant account with each UC campus (this is the information given out by the representatives, but the automated recording is still saying to send corrections to the UC Application Center).

Also keep in mind that:

Freshman applicants are expected to report schedule/grade errors in 9th through 11th grades, 12th grade school/schedule changes, and/or non-passing (D or F) grades in 12th grade courses to each UC campus through the applicant account.

Transfer applicants should use the Transfer Academic Update to make changes to Fall schedule/grades and/or Winter/Spring schedule in January. Errors in previous terms must be reported to each UC campus through the applicant account.

Will making a mistake on your academic history negatively impact your admission decision? My high school counselor recommended that I not add a class I took one semester of online, so I didn’t… just found out I was supposed to. It’s not on my local high school’s official transcript, but it is on my online school one, so I’m stressed that this will reflect badly on me.

You should send a correction to the UC campuses that will accept it just to CYA. Depending on which year you incorrectly added the course, it may also affect your GPA.

If the course was UC-transferable and taken before Fall 2020, then you need to send a correction to each UC campus through your applicant account. If it wasn’t UC-transferable, then I wouldn’t worry about it. If you are taking it for Fall 2020 or later, you can add it when you complete the Transfer Academic Update in January.

I just checked my application information and found a mistake with my 10th grade courses. I filled wrong honors level for my Honors Algebra II course. I filled “HL” in the system, but actually this course is a “NH” courses. How do I fix this mistake? Will this influence my application?

Ms. Sunreply

I wouldn’t worry about that too much. It’s technically correct (your school calls it “Honors”) so it’s up to the UCs to catch and correct the mistake for the GPA calculation (although, based on what I have heard, I’m not sure the UCs actually do that). You wouldn’t be penalized for something like that.

If the entire section is missing, you should contact each UC campus through your applicant portal to explain there was likely a system error and request to send the information for consideration. If only parts of section is missing, you should do the same, but some campuses may choose not to accept the information.

I submitted one of my personal insight essays under the wrong prompt on accident. Is this something that I can even correct? Would making a correction negatively impact my chances of admission?

Ms. Sunreply
December 30, 2020 at 10:18 am
– In reply to: LW

That is unlikely to matter since the application readers are often focused on the content of the information you provided and not necessarily scrutinizing whether you had “correctly” answered the question; there is no such thing as right or wrong when you are discussing your personal achievements and/or circumstances.

If you really want to submit a correction, you could do that through your applicant portal. But I doubt the campuses would care (or make a big deal out of it).

I misreported a course in my 9th grade year cause I took AVID 1-2 (9th grade avid) but I put AVID 12 because I misread.

If you previously completed History HL I or you have two separate entries for History HL (one before 12th and one during 12th), then the UCs will probably figure out that the one for 12th grade is HL II. But you may want to send corrections just in case.

My AP Macroecon class was only 1 semester and for the 2nd semester I was supposed to be taking H Democracy. But during the UC application period I had no idea what class would replace my econ class so I just put “Planned to take” next to econ instead of adding another course: “H democracy.” would fixing it be necessary since they would be looking at my transcript? Also, I accidentally requested my mid year transcript to be sent to UCs even when it wasnt requested. Would the UCs just disregard it?

Ms. Sunreply
January 14, 2021 at 11:38 am
– In reply to: Soh

I’m not entirely sure what you mean. Do you mean you only added one semester of AP Macroecon and the H Democracy is missing entirely or do you mean you added two semesters of AP Macroecon to use that as placeholder for H Democracy?

If the H Democracy is missing entirely, that means you are short one semester of A-G (compared to the actual count you have) and that could disadvantage you.

If you used AP Macroecon as a placeholder, that means the A-G count should be accurate but the course count is off and UCs have the option to nitpick something like that.

Admission evaluation is based entirely on your self-reported information (coursework and grades reported in your application is used to determine whether to admit or reject you). The UCs only look at the transcript in July, AFTER you have been admitted and is committed to enroll (if the UCs did not specifically request a transcript from you prior to July, transcript you elect to send will be disregarded). The only function the transcript serves is to verify that the information in your application is accurate (discrepancies can be deemed to invalidate your application). Your best bet is to send a correction to the UCs because not correcting the issue could create problems for you.

UCs will disregard midyear reports.

So I take a dual enrollment English course offered by a local community college. Last semester, I took English 1A – Freshman Composition as a course, however I didn’t realize that the course I would take for this semester actually goes by a different name (English 1C – Critical Thinking). I thought that I would be taking English 1A the whole year and didn’t realize that the course name would change halfway through. I already reported that I planned on taking English 1A for both first and second semester. Even though English 1C is technically the same as English 1A, would I need to report this change to the UC’s?

You should submit a correction because it’s actually two courses instead of one (so you are taking one more than what you actually reported). Follow the instructions here, under “After submitting a UC admission application.”

I don’t think UCSD is in the habit of sending confirmation emails for corrections. But I do remember they will respond to email inquiries (I think there is an email or link at the bottom of your portal) so you can send a follow up message to make sure the correction was received and processed.

My school is out of state for UC’s and I know they don’t count honors the same. Every class I reported is honors or advanced on my transcript but I selected everything as honors level. I just realized uC doesn’t count out of state honors like they do for in state. Since they say honors on my own application will this be ok or will it hurt my chances and should I notify the mistake to them?

You should be fine. UCs supposedly “clean” the applications to get an accurate GPA, although no one has ever been able to explain the mechanism by which that is accomplished (for hundreds of thousands of applications). From what I can gather, UCs will not penalize students for the kind of mistake you mentioned (because you technically reported the courses exactly as they appear on your transcript) and, if anything, that kind of mistake would make your profile more favorable (I have one anecdote of this, which is complicated to explain and not exactly applicable to your situation, suffice to say that, if the UCs don’t “clean” the application, you’ll likely gain an advantage).

March 16, 2021 at 5:58 am

I was recently admitted to 3 UCs and waiting for the rest. I just noticed that I made 2 mistakes on my self-reported grades. For one class I put B instead of A, and another class I put A instead of B. I know that UCs take accuracy very seriously. Do I need to contact each campus directly with this information or the main UC application center? Will this have a negative impact on my admit status?

Ms. Sunreply

The mistakes seem to balance each other out so you should be ok (assuming both classes are the same level; i.e., both are regular or both are AP). But I would recommend that you submit a correction through the your applicant portal (there should be a correction form or contact form for the admissions office you can use) just to cover your bases.

I inputed some of my AP courses as trimesters instead of semesters. My school is on the trimester system and I forgot to fix them when I put this down. We have two trimesters of the actual AP course and seminar during the last trimester – which is not an actual course to put on UC applications. One of the courses has the third trimester (seminar) grade as credit because of Covid-19 and the rest are courses for my senior year so no grades have been inputed yet. How should I fix this? I’ve already received acceptances from a few schools, so how will that affect them?

That’s fine. UCs generally know about this kind of quirks and I’ve had students who had input issues who got admitted and enrolled without problems. If you are concerned, you can contact the admissions office through your portal and explain that you are not sure you inputted your courses correctly given the type of term your school uses, and ask if you should send an unofficial transcript now just to make sure.

I recently got accepted into UCR and realized i forgot to input a biology class that i failed before entering high school and retook with the rest of my class during my freshman year (i was taking it to get ahead but failed the class with a D). I retook the class during the 9th grade year and reported the grade i got in it but i forgot to report that i took the class the summer before 9th grade as well and didn’t pass. I also forgot to input that i got an A in health the summer going into 10th grade. I emailed UCR about the mistake but do you think this will affect my admission decision?

as a side note the only reason i forgot to add health was because it wasn’t an A-G course and it was just a class i needed to graduate so i wasn’t exactly sure if i was supposed to put it. Furthermore the reason why i didn’t include me taking and not passing biology the summer before 9th grade was because it was before the regular schedule that students take the class and before i entered the high school, so i was unsure.

Ms. Sunreply
March 29, 2021 at 1:02 am

So was it a health class or a biology class? You wouldn’t need to report it if it was a health class because that’s typically not A-G approved.

Ms. Sunreply
March 29, 2021 at 1:17 am
– In reply to: Chris

You don’t need to worry about the health class if it’s not A-G approved. For the biology class, it depends on how your high school notated it on your transcript. If it was listed under “middle school” or “8th grade” on your transcript, then you are not required to report it (because the UC Application is set up in such way that you cannot report that). If it was listed under 9th grade, then you are required to report it.

Yes, it was listed under 9th grade summer (summer before 9th) on my transcripts. I emailed them about the issue after i was accepted and told them about the error.

Generally I don’t think that is going to be an issue (based on how the UC Application is set up and the kind of information UCs want from students), but it really depends on the campus (UCR has final say). Since you already emailed them, just wait for an answer and then go from there.

Hi, so I accidentally marked three courses that were semester courses as full term courses in the academic history section. One of these was taken during my sophomore year, one during junior year, and one during senior year. The funny thing is that this mistake actually hurt my UC gpa, so my UC gpa is actually higher than what I put on my UC app. Because of this I doubt UC Berkeley will rescind me because the mistake was clearly unintentional and I’m actually a better applicant than the one they accepted. I also mentioned that these courses were half year in the additional info section on the UC app, so I have two solid pieces of evidence this wasn’t intentional.

I made a minor mistake in the 12th grade section when inputting my planned courses on the UC Application. At my school Economics and AP Government are one semester long, but on my application, I did not know there was a “NO” option for when the class ends for the off semester, so I put “PL” in replacement for it. However, I want to make it clear that I am still taking BOTH courses and am on track in passing them. I contacted the UC Application center about this issue and a woman named, Catherine Reed, said it was fine for me to explain it once I receive an offer of admission.

I am a transfer that got into a UC for social sciences. I entirely forgot a class that I took years ago (almost a decade) online, I couldn’t even remember the name of the college because I had extenuating circumstances at the time; I thought I entirely dropped before classes were past drop period but it turns out after some digging I had an F in that class. I had originally thought it was only a technical program, not a credit program, but I remembered incorrectly. I am going to see about getting academic renewal for it from the cc.

Send a correction to all of the UCs using your applicant portal; for campuses where you are still waiting for decisions, you may need to wait until after you have received an admission offer (some have stopped taking updates). Remember to explain that you recently realized you omitted a course and the error was unintentional, and you are taking steps to file for academic renewal, which you expect will go through. UCs may ask you to submit proof of academic renewal when it goes through. Whether any of the UCs will cancel your admission offer is difficult to gauge. If you had taken an equivalent course since then, it will count as having been repeated (you should point this out as part of your explanation) and the damage should be minor.

Double check to see if the computer programming class is UC-transferable. You don’t need to report if it is not (look at Assist.org for the year that the course was taken – sometimes UC-transferability will change as community colleges modify the curriculum and gain/lose approval).

If you do need to report it, make sure to also indicate the year you took it and how it is not a reflection of your ability as a student now (because it was so long ago).

I applied to UCSB and was rejected. My PIQ’s were heavily centered around wanting to major in Psychology and I even mentioned “… which is why I am majoring in Psychology at the University of California”. However I just checked my initial application and I had accidentally put down Physiology instead of Psychology as my major which contradicts my essays.

I would suggesting contacting the admissions office to clarify this, but it’s up to you whether you do. It’s impossible to know whether this will have any negative impact on your appeal, which is why I think it’s better to clarify.

My school splits the year into quarters and reports grade every quarter. However, they only report one final grade (the average of the four quarter grades) per class on transcripts. When I applied, I reported my senior year’s first quarter grades even though they wouldn’t show up on my final transcript, only my final grade will. I also accidentally reported that I got an 100 in a Spanish class when I actually got a 96. Am I in danger of getting rescinded, and should I contact admissions?

You should contact admissions to explain the situation (what you said to me works just fine) but I doubt your admission offer will get canceled over something minor like this.

Thanks for the advice! I contacted admissions and followed their instructions to report it on my admissions portal.

Hi, When I fill out the UC application form, I thought I had one year (2 semesters) of dual enrollment with a community college and I reported so. I got admitted to UCLA and have requested the college to send the transcript to UCLA. However, UCLA told me the transcript is deemed preliminary because the transcript only has the grade of the fall semester. (I looked it up at the time of application and it showed 2018FA but I totally didn’t think that it meant FALL ONLY.) It doesn’t show that I was enrolled in the spring semester, nor does it have a grade for spring. What should I do? The high school teacher who taught these courses no longer teaches at my high school. Will my admission be canceled?

You need to send a “change report” to UCLA (follow the instructions here) and say that you mistakenly thought a semester-long course is year-long. Explain that the course was taught at your high school campus and took up the entire academic year, which is why you thought the course was year-long, but you discovered that, on the community college transcript, the course is noted as “Fall” (one-semester). Say that it was an honest mistake (misunderstanding) and unintentional, and you hope it will not affect your admission offer.

Ms. Sun, I took Spanish 3 in summer after 9th grade from an online school and my school put the course on my transcript under that school’s name. When entering the classes on UC app, do I need to make a separate entry for the online school and list Spanish 3 or can I enter it under 10th grade summer under my high school.
Similarly, took Math 1(listed as Math9 on my middle school transcript) in 8th grade and Spanih1 from online school in 8th grade. My high school let me register for Math2 and Spanish 2 in 9th. DO I need to list them under middle school on UC app? Do I need to list the schools names? The thirs one is, attended ATDP in my summer prior to 9th, can I list it uner 9th grade educational prep program on the UC app? Thanks for your help!

You can put Math 1 and Spanish 1 in “Academic history” under the section “7th & 8th grade”; that section does not ask for school names. If your school offers the same Spanish 2 class as the one offered at your online school and the course is listed on your school transcript, you can just list it under your school. Listing ATDP for 9th grade should be fine.
