UC Transfer Admissions Decisions


Transfer applicants will receive University of California admissions decision notifications through their individual UC portals by May 1, 2016. Good news for Cali residents applying to all UC’s this year; including UCLA and Berkeley. The UC plans to increase enrollment of residents this year and will admit a higher number of residents (freshmen and transfer) applying for entry Fall 2016 and 2017, compared to 2015. (Thanks to Governor Brown)
