University of California Extends Application Filing Period to Begin October 1

The February 2022 University of California Counselors and Advisers Bulletin includes some important news regarding the UC first-year application filing period. Applications for admission may be submitted beginning on October 1 (instead of November 1 in past years) for consideration.

UC extends the application filing period
Beginning with the fall 2023 admissions cycle (applicants filing in 2022), the University of California has changed the application filing period. The new filing period will be October 1 – November 30. Note: the deadline will not change.

UC recognizes the month of November can be stressful for students, who are possibly navigating the submission of multiple college applications, preparing for end-of-term finals, and the onset of the holiday season. Allowing students to submit their application as early as October 1 could ease some of the pressure students normally feel at the end of the year, as well as those worsened by the pandemic.
