UC (University of California) Augmented Review Update



The UC Augmented Review Policy, effective for the 2018-19 admission process, allows campuses to request supplemental information from no more than 15 percent of its applicants. Please keep in mind the following:

  • The vast majority of UC applications (98%) are complete as submitted and do not need additional information.
  • The three types of supplemental information that may be requested are seventh-semester grades, response to a questionnaire, and/or letters of recommendation.

There is no requirement, nor expectation, that all campuses will use Augmented Review. However, applicants are reminded to check their email regularly and respond by the indicated deadline if asked by a campus to provide supplemental information.

Campuses that are conducting an Augmented Review process include:BerkeleyDavis, IrvineLos Angeles, and San Diego. Merced is not using Augmented Review but may utilize seventh semester grades to clarify academic questions during their review. Irvine may utilize Augmented Review for some engineering applicants.
