Congratulations to admitted transfer students for fall 2020! (transfer admissions decisions release: beginning March 17, 2020 and continuing on a rolling basis through April 30)

Along with the celebration of admission comes the increased responsibility that is part of becoming a university student. During this transition time, students should keep in mind the following: 

  • Accept their offer of admission through our portal, my.ucsc.edu, no later than the June 1 deadline.
  • Keep contact information current. Students can update their contact information on my.ucsc.edu.
  • Keep a list of deadlines.
  • Explore UC Santa Cruz using our admitted student website.
  • Visit UCSC by taking a Virtual Tour, hosted by our student tour guides and available in five languages. In light of the current situation with the coronavirus (COVID-19), we are suspending our in-person campus tours program at this time.
  • Participate in Slug Orientation (expected of all incoming students) and if possible, Transfer Edge (optional enrichment program).
  • Read their "Conditions of Admission Contract" carefully, as well as the FAQs associated with it, and ensure they meet those expectations.

Students with questions are encouraged to contact an admissions representative, as shown on our contact page. They may also contact Undergraduate Admissions.
