For Fall 2017 applications, the Graduate School has added the ability to include a video essay in your application. This video essay is optional and is NOT a required part of any program’s application process. In moving towards a more holistic admission practice, we added this video component to provide applicants the opportunity to demonstrate attributes that might not be revealed in the other application materials that have been submitted (e.g., GPA, GRE, recommendation letters, etc.). Prior to submitting your finished application, you may remove a recorded video from your application by pressing the “start over” link. Please visit your program’s webpage to see if there is more information about how they will utilize this option.
Students can take classes at UC without being enrolled in a UC degree program. This status is officially called "non-matriculated," which is a traditional academic term meaning "not enrolled in a degree program."
Before you register for classes, you must complete the Basic Data Form. This form enables the UC Registrar to update or create your student record. After you submit the Basic Data Form, it will take a day or two for your information to be entered into our student database. You will then be able to register for classes.
