Transfer Academic Update deadline in January for transfer applicants
Transfer students must update their application with fall 2017 grades and winter/spring 2018 courses by the end of January. Even if the record of courses and grades was complete and final in the original application, students still need to complete the Transfer Academic Update (TAU).
The priority deadline to complete the TAU is January 31. Late submissions will delay the review of the application and have the potential to affect the admission decision.
In addition to the systemwide TAU, applicants should also check their email (and spam/junk mail folders) for campus specific forms and/or requests.
Reminder: Test scores and transcript submissions
If an applicant has not yet submitted their official test scores or has questions about submitting their transcript, please keep the following in mind:
SAT and ACT test scores: Official SAT with Essay, ACT with Writing, SAT Subject Tests and TOEFL scores need to ONLY be sent to ONE campus – UC will share scores with all campuses to which a student has applied. IELTS scores, however, must be sent to each UC campus. The SAT Subject Exams are not required, but encouraged for some majors.
Official AP/IB/A-Level exam scores: Official score reports are not required until after an offer of admission is accepted; the deadline for submission is July 15th. The UC campus from which a student accepts an offer of admission will provide instructions with the offer of admission.
Transcripts: Do not submit official transcripts at this time unless a UC campus specifically requests them.
Application verification process
Students randomly selected to verify information in their application were notified by the end of Dec. 2017. The deadline to respond is Jan. 31, 2018. A small number of students were asked to provide documentation of 7/8th grade geometry. A non-response to the request for verification will result in cancellation of the application.
Instructions for cancelling or withdrawing an application
If an applicant wants to cancel or withdraw their UC application from further consideration, each campus has specific instructions on how to do so. Instructions can be found at the link below.
March 2: Financial aid priority deadline
Students can apply for financial aid now. The priority filing period for FAFSA and the California Dream Act Application ends March 2
