Meet UC Santa Cruz

Preview Day is our annual open house to welcome prospective students and their families to learn more about UCSC’s community of “Global Trailblazers.”

Preview Day informational sessions are available at 10 a.m., 12 p.m., and 2 p.m. Informational Sessions are 2 hours in length. Guests should register for one session.

Your Preview Day session includes a 45-minute overview on UCSC’s academic undergraduate opportunities, residential and student life, and freshman and transfer admissions. Following the overview, you will depart on a 60-minute all-walking campus tour.

New for 2015: We are offering UC application information sessions. These will be separate freshman and transfer UC application information sessions. Each 1- hour session will take place at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. No separate registration is required. Please visit the Preview Day Events page for more details.
