UC Transfer Academic Update

From Transfer academic update (retrieved on January 6, 2023):

After applying, transfer students are required to update their grades and course records.

You must provide your final grades from the previous term and list all courses in progress or planned for the term before you expect to enroll. Your updates will ensure UC campuses have the most current academic information available. Even if you do not have any in-progress or planned courses and your record of course grades was complete in your original application, you must log in to your application and complete the Transfer Academic Update.

Fall 2023

TAUs need to include grades through fall 2022 and planned coursework through summer 2023. The priority deadline is January 31, 2023.


  • The Transfer Academic Update is available online now.
  • ALL transfer applicants (sophomore, junior, and senior transfers) MUST complete the update at least once before the priority deadline.
  • The Transfer Academic Update will remain open after the priority deadline and transfer applicants may continue using it to submit grades/schedule updates until the end of March.
  • Remember that 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 courses unless you know for sure that: 1) the courses will actually be offered and 2) you are fully committed to completing the courses.
  • Berkeley requires an additional update which can be accessed through MAP@Berkeley. Berkeley transfer applicants MUST complete BOTH the Transfer Academic Update and the Berkeley update in order to be considered for admission.

Hello, I received admission offers from several UC’s, but I noticed that UC Davis still has one of the courses I provided before the TAU, under the Preliminary Credit and Examination Summary. In the original application, I had a planned Winter course but had to delete it in the TAU with an explanation. The course was not a major requirement and the TAU was submitted before the January 31 priority deadline. Will it affect my offer?

I recommend getting in touch with Davis through your student portal and point out that the information in there does not match your TAU.
