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.

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.

Is April 18th still accurate for UCLA?

That’s my current best guess.

Why is UC Berkeley’s response earlier than usual? And, how early?

Ms. Sunreply

It’s early by a week and the official explanation for the earlier decision date was it will “ensure that students are making an informed decision when choosing Berkeley” and “provide newly admitted transfer students an opportunity to visit campus, to engage with current students, faculty, staff and alumni, and get many of their questions answered prior to accepting their offer of admission to Berkeley” (source; select “January 8, 2019” from the drop-down menu).

Good morning Ms. Sun,

If decisions for UCLA transfer students do not come out today (4/18), do you have a next best guess to when they will be released?

Thank you,

Casey

The current speculated decision release date appears to be April 24, 2019. I looked around a bit and the sources are sketchy, so I’m putting it down as unconfirmed.

Called UCLA’s Admissions today and spoke to representative regarding transfer decisions. They said they would come out next Wednesday 4/24.

UCLA admissions just replied to a question about transfer notices on twitter. They said decisions would not be released today.

I saw that. There has been a speculated decision release date of April 24, 2019 circulating for a while. The sources are sketchy at best, but I have updated the timeline to April 24, 2019 as unconfirmed.

At what time on the 19th will Berkeley decisions be out?

Usually between late afternoon and early evening (4 p.m. and 6 p.m.).

There is no information regarding UCSD transfer admission release date at this time. If anything changes, it will be updated here (this link is also in the body of the post above).

Santa Cruz and Berkeley expected today? Thanks.

Santa Cruz has been rolling out transfer admission decisions since March 17 (try refreshing your web browser on the decision page; I remember UCSC portal had a browser cache problem before). Berkeley transfer decisions should come out this afternoon (4/19, probably sometime between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.).

Any idea when UCSD will be coming out since they didn’t come out yesterday? It’s been before Berkeley almost every year so I’m confused.

Ms. Sunreply

Maybe; how the decisions are released this year seems a little unusual compared to previous years (I think the freshman over-enrollment from Fll 2018 may be somewhat affecting the transfers this year; this is purely speculation on my part).

Do you know if UCLA sends acceptance emails for transfers immediately after they release decisions?

Ms. Sunreply
April 22, 2019 at 5:55 pm
– In reply to: Kylie

Probably within an hour or two; although sometimes the email can get delayed while being transmitted and I’ve heard of instances of people not getting the email until a day or two later.

What time do most decisions become available from the UC’s? Is it totally random or is there a general time that they wait to release it?
