Remember that the priority deadline for the Transfer Academic Update is on Wednesday, January 31, 2024. Final grades for Fall 2023 submitted by the deadline will be calculated into your GPA for transfer admission evaluation. You may continue to update your grades, in-progress courses, and/or planned courses through the Transfer Academic Update until the end of March, but the UCs do not guarantee consideration for grades or changes submitted after the priority deadline.
Please note that only UC-transferable course grades up to and including FALL 2023 will be used to calculate the GPA for admission evaluation; any Winter 2024 intersession or Spring 2024 short-term courses, even if the grades become available by January 31, 2024, will NOT be included in the GPA used for admission evaluation (although I recommend updating/including them, especially if they are for your major prerequisite requirements and/or can help boost your academic profile). To complete the Transfer Academic Update, simply log back into your UC Application.
Berkeley requires a separate update which can be accessed through MAP@Berkeley. Berkeley transfer applicants MUST complete BOTH the UC Transfer Academic Update and the MAP@Berkeley update in order to be considered for admission.
Keep in mind that some UC campuses may hold you accountable for planned summer courses (and cancel your admission offer when you don’t come through). Do NOT put down Summer 2024 courses unless you know for sure that: 1) the courses will actually be offered, and 2) you are fully committed to completing the courses.
