University of California

The University of California opened its doors in 1869 with just 10 faculty members and 38 students. Today, the UC system includes more than 233,000 students and more than 190,000 faculty and staff, with more than 1.7 million alumni living and working around the world.

Thinking about which University of California campus — or campuses — to apply to can be an exciting, thought-provoking and possibly intimidating process. You have nine choices available. That means nine geographic locations, tempos and personalities to consider.

Explore your options

It's helpful to understand that while all UC campuses provide creative and challenging learning opportunities, not every campus is suited to every student.  Along with thinking about what you want scholastically — which is certainly important — reflect on what you're looking for socially and geographically, too.

Admission Requirements

Our admission guidelines are designed to ensure you are well-prepared to succeed at UC.  If you're interested in entering the University of California as a freshman, you'll want to be sure to review these requirements carefully.

Information for international students

Applicants from around the world are welcome at UC. In addition to satisfying the academic requirements, you'll also need to pass an English exam and secure a visa.

Can I afford a UC education?

Most families pay less than the full price of attending UC. In fact, more than half of our undergraduate students pay no tuition at all. Over two-thirds of UC undergraduates receive grants and scholarships, with an average award of around $16,300. But to get financial aid, you need to apply.

CSU Eligibility Index

Calculate Your CSU Eligibility Index

Once you calculate your grade point average, you can use this formula to see if your grade point average and test scores meet the minimum required eligibility index.  California residents must have a minimum eligibility index of 2900 using SAT scores or 694 using ACT scores.

**Neither ACT nor SAT writing scores are included in the calculation of the CSU Eligibility Index.)**

Using SAT Scores (not with writing):

Your GPA  x 800 + Your SAT Total = Your Index 


Using ACT Scores (not with writing):

Your GPA x 200 + (10 x ACT Comp) = Your Index

Updated CSU Eligibility Index 

Major Selection @ CSU

All CSU campuses admit student's according to major.  Each major at each campus will have a different Eligibility Index required for admission.  A good rule of thumb is to apply for the major that you are most interested in, but choose an alternate major that is not impacted (if possible).  Keep in mind that Cal Poly Pomona, our local CSU, will look at intended major ONLY.

Major Selection @ UC

In most cases, students are not admitted or denied to a UC campus by major, however there are some exceptions.  Most campus will evaluate students applying to the college of Engineering, Nursing or Fine/Performing Arts by additional standards.  Majors located in the college of Letters and Science do not factor into the admission process.  

Be sure to review all available majors, including those that are currently closed.  Other college considerations will depend upon the campus.

UC Personal Insight Questions

The UC has made a change from the two prompt personal statement to a series of personal insight questions. You have eight questions to choose from but you must respond to only four.  Each response is limited to 350 words and the questions you choose to answer are entirely up to you - no questions is "better" to answer than another.  Need some help?
