Some changes can be made online; some must be made in writing and and sent to the UC Application Center. Details on the UC website.

  • To correct contact information, log in to your UC Application to update your mailing address, email or phone number;
  • To notify us of academic changes, link below to the form you need, depending on whether you're applying as a freshman or transfer student.

For freshmen

Freshmen applicants must notify UC San Diego of any of the following:

  • changes to planned coursework in "a–g" courses for senior year
  • unsatisfactory grades such as a D or F received during senior year of high school
  • senior year weighted GPA falling below 3.0
  • changing schools
  • failure to meet the terms of the provisional contract after being offered admission as a freshman

During December, send changes to the UC Application Center – details on the UC website.

After January 15, use the Freshman Academic Update form  [link will be activated in mid-January]

For transfer students

Transfer applicants are required to update grades and course records:

  • provide your final grades from the previous term
  • list all courses in progress or planned for the term before you expect to enroll

Between January 9 and the January 31 priority deadline, you can use the UC Transfer Application Academic Update form.

Continue to use this form until the end of March.

FAQ: What documents should I send now?

Nothing! You're done!
Now that you've submitted your UC application, we have everything necessary for evaluation.

In fact, it's important to not send additional documentation. Why?

  • It won't help your application.
  • Transcripts, letters of recommendation, 6th or 7th semester grades, or any other supplemental documents are not added to your file and will not be reviewed.
  • What do we review?
  • Check the evaluation process for freshmen applicants and the UC guidelines for transfer applicants.

FAQ: Did you attend school outside the US?

If you did, for any length of time, it's important to check this list for the types of documents you need to send us.

FAQ: AP Exams/Test Scores

For freshmen, information you need now about AP Exams. For both freshmen and transfer applicants, information about IB credit.
