UC Supplemental Applications

See below for a complete list of UC campuses and majors that require a supplemental application for admission (freshman and transfer applicants).

I also included some majors that have a required or optional audition, interview, and/or portfolio; but the list for these majors is not exhaustive. If you are unsure whether the major you selected has a required or optional audition, interview, and/or portfolio, log back into your UC Application account to check (go to “View Application” and look at your major; there would be a note if you are required, or have the option, to schedule an audition or interview, and/or submit a portfolio).

Remember, if a supplemental application is required for the major you selected, you must submit one by the deadline to be considered for admission to the major. Depending on the UC campus, not submitting a required supplemental application can mean an automatic rejection from that campus. If you did not or do not plan to submit a supplemental application before the deadline for a major that requires it, contact the UC campus to find out if you can change your major.
