UC Santa Cruz welcomes students from outside of California and from all over the world. We hope that this page is useful to you -- as a counselor from outside of California or outside the U.S. -- to help you guide your students through the admissions process so that they can become successful students at UC Santa Cruz. 

Important Message about Agents

UC Santa Cruz does not partner with agents to represent the University or to administer any part of the undergraduate admission application process. The engagement of agents or private organizations for the purpose of recruiting or enrolling international students is not endorsed by UC Santa Cruz. Agents who may be retained by students to help with the application process are not recognized as representatives of the University and do not have a contractual agreement or partnership to represent UC Santa Cruz.

UC Santa Cruz expects all applicants to complete their own application materials. The use of agent services is not aligned with UC’s Statement on Integrity -- expectations explained as a part of applying for admission to the University.

UC Santa Cruz expects an application to be the work of the applicant and that all information on the application is complete, accurate, and truthful.
