UC Transfer Admission Decision Timeline (Preliminary)

Below is the preliminary timeline of when you can expect to find your transfer 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 Transfer Application Timeline – UC Decisions.

UC Berkeley – All decisions will become available at MAP@Berkeley on April 19, 2019 (earlier than usual; confirmed).

UC Davis – All decisions will likely become available at MyAdmissions around April 19, 2019 based on previous years’ decision date.

UC Irvine – Decisions will likely come out in batches at MyAdmission and Message Center starting around the third week of March (very small batch) and continue through the end of April (most decisions will likely be out toward the end of April) based on previous years’ decision date range.

UCLA – All decisions may become available at myApplication Status on or before April 18, 2019 (UCLA typically releases transfer decisions before Berkeley, by at least one day).

UC Merced – Decisions will likely come out in batches at MyUCMerced throughout the month of April.

UC Riverside – Decisions will likely come out in batches at MyUCR starting around mid-April based on previous years’ decision date range.

UC San Diego – Decisions may come out in batches starting around mid-March and continue through April OR be released all at once on or before April 18, 2019 at Applicant Portal (UCSD has released decisions in batches AND all at once in the past, and almost always before Berkeley).

UC Santa Barbara – Decisions will come out in batches at Applicant Portal on March 19, April 1, 15, and 30 (confirmed).

UC Santa Cruz – Decisions will likely come out in batches at MyUCSC starting around March 15, 2019 and continue through April based on previous years’ decision date range.

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 must log into the online system in order to check your admission decision. All UCs will send admissions packets to admitted students; campuses will NOT mail letters to students who are NOT admitted.
