Transcripts: Students must refer to transcripts as they fill out the application to ensure the information they enter is accurate. However, they do not submit transcripts at this point in the process. Transcripts must be submitted only to the one campus at which the student plans to enroll by the July 1 transcript deadline (unless specifically asked by a campus prior to the admission decision).
Letters of Recommendation: Students must not submit letters of recommendation unless specifically asked by a campus. Please do not encourage students to send letters of recommendation as part of the UC application process. Some campuses/majors may require letters of recommendation as part of a supplemental application review, so please make sure students check for an email message from a campus.
