UC Admission Decisions Release Dates
The University of California campuses will release admission decisions generally between March 14 and March 27, and a few UC campuses have started sending out freshman admission decisions on a rolling basis already. Below is a list of admissions decision release dates, by campus:
There are three possible admission decision outcomes:
(1) You are admitted -- Congratulations! Be sure to submit your Statement of Intent to Register and enrollment deposit by May 1st!
(2) You have been denied admission -- Boo! But don't sweat it. This is the reason for applying to several colleges, and if you planned wisely, you are bound to be admitted to one or more of these colleges.
(3) You have been offered a spot on the waitlist -- more waiting?!?!
All campuses, except Merced, will use waitlists for their freshman pools.
Almost all of the UC campuses have more qualified students than they have space for. So the campuses need to make some difficult decisions when selecting the freshmen class. Being offered a spot on the waitlist means that you may be admitted if an applicant who has been admitted to the campus decides not to attend (by not submitting a Statement of Intent to Register) and a space opens up.
What you need to know:
If you are denied to a campus, but feel you have grounds for an appeal the decision to deny your application, you may submit an appeal.
