August 2018 UC Counselors and Advisers Bulletin

Just a quick note: The Quick Reference for Counselors is a great one-stop resource for both freshman and transfer applicants. Some transfer resources can only be found in the guide, such as intercampus transferring and campus-by-campus comparison of transfer admission criteria, process, and procedure.


From the UC Counselors and Advisers Bulletin – August 2018, received on August 14, 2018:


UC Application for Fall 2019 is now open!

The fall 2019 admission application is available. Please encourage your students to begin the application now. Applications can be submitted between Nov. 1-30.

The latest versions of “Presenting Yourself on the UC Application” for both freshman and transfer applicants are also available. These will provide you and your students with guidance on how applicants can maximize opportunities to represent themselves on the application. Students can access the freshman presentation here and the transfer presentation here. Counselors can find them in the downloadable resources section of our counselor website here. Both versions include extensive notes.
