Below is the preliminary timeline of when you can expect to find your freshman admission decision online from each UC campus. Some campuses have confirmed decision release dates (often posted within your applicant portal); for campuses that do not have confirmed decision release dates, I added anticipated dates based on the decision dates from last year.
For the most up-to-date known decision release dates, see Freshman Application Timeline – UC Decisions.
Davis – all decisions will likely become available at MyAdmissions around March 9, 2018 based on previous years’ decision date
Irvine – a batch of early decisions was released on February 22; regular decisions will likely come out in batches at MyAdmission and Message Center starting around mid-March based on previous years’ decision date range
UCLA – all decisions will likely become available at myApplication Status on March 16, 2018 based on previous years’ decision date
Merced – decisions will likely come out in batches at MyUCMerced starting at the beginning of March based on previous years’ decision date range
Riverside – decisions will likely come out in batches at MyUCR starting at the beginning of March based on previous years’ decision date range
San Diego – all decisions will likely become available at MyApplication on March 16, 2018 based on crowdsourced information
Santa Barbara – a batch of “early” decisions will likely be released during the first half of March; regular decisions will likely become available at Application Status on March 20, 2018 based on previous years’ decision date
Santa Cruz – all decisions will become available at MyUCSC on March 15, 2018 (confirmed)
You will receive an email from the campus notifying you that your admission status has changed when the decision becomes available (occasionally there is a 1-2 day delay between when the decision becomes available and when the email goes out). You usually have to log into the online system to check your admission decision (some UC campuses may state the decision within the email). All UCs will send admissions packets to admitted students; campuses will NOT mail letters to students who are NOT admitted.
