Admission by exception
Sometimes even the most creative, focused and intellectually passionate students aren't able to fulfill our admission requirements. Even these students have a chance to attend UC.
Some students are home-schooled and don't have transcripts. Others have life circumstances that have prevented them living up to their promise.
If you have a student whom you believe has the ability and potential to succeed at UC, he or she may be eligible for admission by exception.
Each UC campus can offer admission to a few students who do not meet all of our admission requirements. Students may use the personal insight questions or additional comments section of the admission application to explain their unique story.
