Transfer admission decision dates!
Transfer notification began in March and all applicants will know their status by the end of April. Click the link below for the decision release schedule by campus as well as handy "Next Steps" tables for both freshman and transfer applicants.
Applicant information
Accepting a freshman or transfer admission offer
Students accept an admission offer by agreeing to and meeting the provisions/conditions outlined in the offer and submitting their Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) with the SIR deposit to reserve their space at a campus. The SIR deposit is $250. Some important things to keep in mind about accepting a UC admission offer:

1. SIR Deadlines: The SIR deadline for freshman applicants is May 1. The SIR deadline for transfer applicants is June 1.

2. For students who received an application fee waiver, the SIR deposit may be deferred until financial aid is disbursed.

3. The SIR deposit is nonrefundable and non-transferable. Admitted students should not submit a SIR to more than one UC campus. If an applicant changes his or her mind regarding which UC campus to attend 
prior to the SIR deadline or accepts a waitlist offer from another UC campus, the original SIR deposit is not transferable between UC campuses. The previous deposit is forfeited and a new deposit must be submitted.

4. Some UC campuses may require the student to attend an Orientation. Orientation is valuable to your student's successful matriculation and can be a great opportunity to make new friends!  Students should review orientation options early to secure a date that best meets their schedule.

5. Students may be required to submit a Statement of Legal Residence (SLR). The SLR is used to determine a student's classification as a resident or non-resident for tuition purposes.
Count Me In - Another opportunity for admission to UC
California resident applicants who met the criteria for guaranteed admission to UC through the Local (ELC) or Statewide paths, but did not receive an admission offer from any campus to which they applied, have received an invitation from UC Merced. Students must respond to the "Count Me In" opportunity by April 17 to receive an official offer of admission from UC Merced.
UC campuses to use waitlists for freshman and transfer students
All campuses, except Merced, will use waitlists for freshman and/or transfer applicants. An invitation to be on the list is not a guarantee of a future admission offer. Each campus has its own specific process for waitlisted applicants.
Academic records due on July 1
Freshman and transfer students who accept an offer of admission to a University of California campus have until July 1 to submit final, official transcripts/academic records to the UC campus where they intend to enroll.

School Administrators:  If your school/institution is unable to meet the July 1 deadline, notify UC by emailing to: . Please be sure to include your school's name, College Board code, and the date that you expect to submit transcripts.
Cancelling or Withdrawing a Statement of Intent to Register
Applicants who have submitted a Statement of Intent to Register (SIR), and changed their mind or accept another offer, must cancel their SIR following the directions for the campus listed in the link below. 

The campus SIR deposit is nonrefundable and non-transferable.  Applicants cancelling one SIR to a UC campus in order to accept another offer of admission from a different UC campus must submit a new SIR and deposit.
Personal insight questions information
UC's personal insight questions will remain the same for fall 2018 applicants with some slightly modified wording for questions 6 & 8 for freshman applicants and question 7 for transfer applicants. The modifications came as a result of counselor and adviser feedback and campuses desire to provide more focus and clarity for students.  For the questions, FAQ's, instructions, and worksheets for freshman and transfer applicants, please click the link below. These changes are effective June 2017.
