Congratulations to admitted students for fall 2018! (after March 15, 2018)

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 May 1 for freshmen or June 1 for transfers.
  • Keep contact information current. Students can update their contact information on my.ucsc.edu.
  • Keep a list of deadlines.
  • Visit UCSC during Admitted Student Tours. If they can't attend in person, take advantage of our Spotlight Mondays or the Virtual Tour.
  • For international frosh, attend Summer Academy: International and Global Start: International Student Introduction to UCSC (mandatory). For all other students, attend Summer Orientation in July/August.
  • Read their "Conditions of Admission Contract" carefully and ensure they meet those expectations.

To help you advise your students, here are PDFs of the most common Conditions of Admission Contracts.

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. For the complete Statement, go to: https://admissions.universityofcalifornia.edu/docs/StatementOfIntegrity.pdf

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.
