The UC application’s Nov. 30 deadline is fast approaching, especially since it falls on Thanksgiving weekend this year. We know this can be a highly stressful time for your students and wanted to provide a few last-minute reminders:
- Students have until 11:59 p.m. PST on Nov. 30 to submit their applications. We encourage you to remind students to be thorough and careful before submitting their application. After the application is submitted, an applicant can ONLY make changes to contact information, update self-reported test scores and complete application fee payments.
- The UC Application Center should be the go-to resource for students with any application questions this week and next.
Nov. 1-24, Monday–Friday: 8 a.m.–10 p.m. PST; closed Saturday and Sunday
Nov. 25–27: 8 a.m.–11 p.m.
Thanksgiving Day: closed
Extended hours, Nov. 29-30: 8 a.m.–midnight PST
- Email: ucinfo@applyUCsupport.net
- Phone: (800) 207-1710, toll free in the U.S.; (661) 336-5723 outside the U.S.
- Address: UC Application Center, P.O. Box 1432, Bakersfield, CA 93302
- Test scores: Applicants who plan to take or retake the SAT or ACT after the application deadline can list planned test dates on the application and submit their official scores by the end of December. To expedite the delivery of these test scores, UC does not recommend applicants use the ACT Priority Reporting or College Board's Score Choice function or Rush Score delivery. All official test scores can be submitted to one campus, as test scores are disseminated to all campuses to which the student has applied.
- SAT Subject Test: Although not required by UC, some programs recommend completion of specific Subject Tests. The guidelines outlined above apply to Subject Tests. For recommendations, visit: http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/freshman/requirements/examination-requirement/SAT-subject-tests/index.html
Advanced Placement/International Baccalaureate:
- AP/IB scores must be reported on the admission application. Official scores must be submitted by the testing agency, after acceptance of an offer of admission, to the one campus at which the student plans to enroll.
- Although the College Board reports all AP tests results to the UC campus, students should be aware that AP test scores lower than 3 will not adversely affect their chances for admission, nor will IB Higher Level individual subject grades below 5.

Counselors are responsible for working with students and their families to create an educational plan. Counselors also assist students in finding answers to educational, vocational, and personal questions. The counseling office, in cooperation with the Career Center, also acts as an informational agency providing college catalogs and brochures, scholarship information and vocational and occupational materials. College admission applications and work permits are also obtained from this department. In addition, t his department serves as a referral agency, suggesting sources for individual and family counseling. A student conflict resolution program is available to all students. If a student is involved in a conflict with another student or knows of a conflict occurring between other students, they should request to see their counselor or dean.
