Before you submit the UC Application, review the Application Summary page thoroughly by clicking on “View Application” to see the application in its entirety; what you see there will look relatively similar to what the application readers see when they review your UC Application. Ask a parent, a guardian, a friend, or your counselor (or a teacher) to look through everything to catch errors you may have missed. Keep in mind that you cannot initiate the submission process until all status indicators (the green dots) are showing “completed” (filled).
Keep in mind that Thanksgiving weekend will likely be chaotic. You can expect intermittent issues with slow server response, server timeout, and (although unlikely, possible) server crashes (and don’t forget the occasional natural disaster that tends to knock out power or internet toward the end of November, which has happened at least four times in the last 10 years).
If you already submitted the UC Application, log back in and review your submitted application to make sure there were no errors (for couple years, the system scrambled the Academic History section of some students). Contact the UC Application Center if your submitted application does not match the information you entered or if you catch any mistakes in the Academic History section: (800) 207-1710 (within U.S.) or (925) 298-6856 (outside U.S.), or by email at email@example.com.
Freshman applicants – If you are taking the December SAT with Essay and/or ACT with Writing test(s), make sure you log back into the UC Application and self-report the December score(s) once you receive it. Many UCs will review the application with self-reported scores (although official score reports are required for verification). Promptly self-reporting your December score(s) can expedite the processing and review of your application.
