We're looking for fearless innovators. Bold risk-takers. Those with a compulsive urge to take things apart, discover what makes them tick and put them back together in surprising new ways. People who are eager to swap ideas, share experiences and explore the world with a fresh perspective. If that sounds like you, start building your future at UC San Diego.
UC San Diego is test-optional for all Fall 2021 and 2022 applicants. We are test-blind for Fall 2023 and 2024 applicants from California public and independent high schools. For historical context, the ranges shown below reflect the middle 50% of our fall 2020 admitted students. Among this pool of admitted students, 25% also had a GPA or test scores higher than the range posted here, and 25% had lower.
International applicants must meet the same first-year requirements for admission as any other first-year applicant in addition to the international requirements.
