Freshman admission profiles

Freshman admission profiles summarize the academic qualifications of applicants and admitted freshmen to each UC campus for fall 2015.

Please be cautious in drawing conclusions from this information. The numbers are useful only as a general guide to selectivity and not as a predictor of your chances for admission to a particular campus.

These figures are preliminary, as of June 18, 2015. Some campuses admitted students after that date, which may affect their statistics. In addition, keep the following in mind:

  • Data for several colleges on a campus are grouped together, which masks the differences in the degree of competition for admission among them. Some campuses and colleges admit students directly into individual majors, and the degree of competition among majors may vary widely.
  • The data reflect the selection process for fall 2015 applicants. The selection process may vary from year to year; therefore the results may differ significantly.
  • GPA is defined as a student's grade point average in the "a-g" subjects. The average high school GPA listed for each campus is computed from 10th and 11th grade coursework, including up to eight honors courses. These GPAs are drawn from application data at the system-wide admissions office. Average exam scores are derived from the highest official reported scores from a single test administration.
