UC Information Center

The UC Information Center is a treasure trove of UC admission stats, fully equipped with impressive graphical representation tools to make the information easier to interpret. Below is a summary of what you can find on there (I only included the data sets that would be of the most interest to prospective freshman and transfer applicants, and their parents; but there is a ton of data in the Information Center that would make interesting leisure reading material).


Freshman Admission Data

Remember that you may hover your mouse over the fancy graphical display to get additional textual information.

The Admissions by source school data table (the page defaults to the “Frosh by Yr” tab) shows the number of applicants, number of admits, and number of enrollees from different high schools to each UC campus or systemwide. You can look at data going back 20+ years. Choose the UC campus for which you want to see the data, and locate the data for your high school by using the “Search for a school” box. Click over to the “Frosh GPA by HS” tab if you want to see the average applicant GPA, average admitted GPA, and average enrolled GPA from a high school (the page defaults to “Oakland high”) to each UC campus or systemwide. You can see how the averages shifted over the past 20+ years (by default the data sets for all available years are displayed). Locate the data for your high school by using the “Search for school name” box.

The Freshman fall admissions summary dashboard displays a plethora of admission information. For example, you can see detailed breakdowns of freshman applicants admitted to each UC campus by GPA range (Select a View: Freshman Admits; Campus: take your pick; Applicant Characteristics: HS GPA) and also see how the admission trends shifted over the past 20+ years (by default the data sets for all available years are displayed).


Transfer Admission Data

Remember that you may hover your mouse over the fancy graphical display to get additional textual information.

The Transfers by Major data table (the page defaults to the “By Major Name” tab) shows the number of applicants, number of admits, admit GPA range, and admit rate by UC campus and major. You can look at data going back to 2012. Choose the UC campus for which you want to see the data, and look at data for all of the majors or use “Search for Major Name” to locate a specific major.

The Admissions by source school data table (click on the “Trsfrs by Coll” tab) shows the number of applicants, number of admits, and number of enrollees from a California community college (the page defaults to “Laney” College) to each UC campus and systemwide. You can see how the admission trends shifted over the past 20+ years (by default the data sets for all available years are displayed). Locate the data for your community college by using the “Search for a college” box.

The Transfer fall admissions summary dashboard displays a plethora of admission information. For example, you can see detailed breakdowns of transfer applicants admitted to each UC campus by GPA range (Select a View: Transfer Admits; Campus: take your pick; Applicant Characteristics: Transfer GPA) and also see how the admission trends shifted over the past 20+ years (by default the data sets for all available years are displayed). One great thing about this data is that you can separate out the information between California community colleges and “other” colleges (such as UC, CSU, other four-year colleges, and out-of-state community colleges).

The California Community College new enrollments at UC dashboard gives you the option to look at how your fellow community college peers are faring in the UC admissions process. Choose the community college you are attending (or considering to attend) to see the number of students from that community college admitted to each UC campus and systemwide.
