Our doors are open
Every year, we welcome nearly 40,000 freshmen from all over California — and the world. It adds up to an eye-opening, boundary-breaking, horizon-stretching mix of backgrounds, cultures and ethnicities. Come be a part of it.
We’re ready when you are
We make sure that California community college students are first in line for admissions. And if you’re well-prepared, you can even get a guaranteed place at some of our campuses.
You've got what it takes to get a UC degree. So what are you waiting for? Find everything you need to apply to the best public university system in the world.
A UC degree opens our students to a lifetime of opportunity. And with one of the best financial aid programs anywhere, we make sure those opportunities are open to everyone.
And 72% receive grants and scholarships (money that you don’t need to repay).
California students: If your family's income is under $80,000 and you qualify for financial aid, you won't pay systemwide tuition or fees.
