I've Applied, Now What?

After you submit your application, you will receive an email from the university confirming receipt of your application. The email will also contain information on what you need to do next. Most UC and CSU universities will have you create an account on their Campus Portal where you can monitor the status of your application. Follow all the instructions carefully and meet all deadlines. Also, make sure to check your email and the campus portals regularly. 

University of California (UC)  - Do not send your transcripts to the UC campuses unless you are specifically requested to do so. In lieu of transcripts, UC requires students to submit a Transfer Application Update (TAU) with your Fall grades and updated Spring/Summer classes. UC Berkeley requires additional forms to be completed. Click on the campus to go directly to the university's general information for students who have already submitted an application.

California State Universities (CSU)  - Some CSU campuses will instruct you to send official transcripts by a specific deadline prior to making the admission decision. Check your email and the campus portal regularly. Some CSU campuses, like San Diego State, require supplemental information from all applicants. You can refer to the CSU Supplemental Information Grid for an overview but always follow the directions provided to you directly from the university. Some majors at CSU campuses also require supplemental information from applicants. You can refer to the CSU Major-Specific Supplemental Information Grid for an overview but always follow the instructions you receive from the campus for the specific term you will be transferring. Click on the campus to go directly to the university's general information for students who have already submitted an application.
