Dear students and parents,
Good news - again! UC Merced, UC Riverside and UC Santa Cruz will accept both freshman and transfer applications in all majors until 11:59 p.m. PDT on Tuesday, December 15, 2020.
We can help! If you'd like support in completing the application to any of these three UC's, feel free to reach out to La Porte Education Advising.
The UC website has resources on admission requirements, how to create an application, and information on Financial Aid including the Blue and Gold Opportunity program and the Middle Class Scholarship program.
UC will waive application fees for up to four campuses for qualifying students. The online fee waiver is within the UC admission application and uses the applicant’s family size and income to determine eligibility. During the payment process, the system will apply the approved fee waiver.
Join a virtual event where students can get their questions about applying and navigating the application process answered LIVE by UC admissions staff.
Dates: December 9th, 10th and 14th
Time: 6 — 8 p.m.
