After you apply

You've selected your campuses, submitted your application, paid your application fees. Now what? You still have a few more items to cross off your list.

What to do after you apply

1.  Print a copy of your application.

You'll want to keep a record of your application ID and a summary of your application for reference.

2.  Order test score reports.

Be sure to have your ACT and SAT scores reported by the testing agency. If you have your official score report sent to one campus, it will be available to all campuses to which you applied.

3.  Update your application.

You can log in to your application to review and, if necessary, change your telephone number, email, mailing address or SAT, ACT, TOEFL, or International Exam Scores. You can also apply to additional campuses if they're still open.

If there are changes to your academic record: If you change schools, add or drop a course, or fail to earn a C or better in a course after you submit your application, you must notify the UC Application Center by email or postal mail. Your correspondence must include your name, UC Application ID number and your signature (if you mail a letter), and will be available to all the campuses you applied to.

If you receive an offer of admission, be sure to confirm with the campus admission office that they are aware of the deficient grade or schedule changes. Although you must notify the campus of these changes, we cannot guarantee that a campus can go back to review an application after correspondence has been received. Make sure to save a copy of your correspondence just in case.


Postal mail:

UC Application Center
P.O. Box 1432
Bakersfield, CA 93302

If there are changes to other sections of your application: Minor changes to your activities, awards, volunteer work or employment are unlikely to have an impact on your admission decision.

4.  Await the decision.

Each UC campus will notify you of its admission decision, generally by March 31.
