Program’s Submission of Supplementary Materials

Applicants should upload required supplementary materials, such as personal statements, test scores and CVs, during the application. Only materials requested by the program through the application requirements will be attached to the application and available for review. Applicants should under no circumstances submit unrequested materials through the mail as they will be shredded and not considered.

Unofficial recommendation letters are never accepted. If a program receives an unsealed letter from an applicant, the coordinator should e-mail the applicant to alert him or her of the situation and ask the applicant to contact the recommender to arrange for another recommendation to be submitted officially. Recommendation letters must be received sealed directly from the recommender or a dossier service.

Students are responsible for sending GRE and/or score reports for tests of English proficiency to the program for which they are applying. Test scores for the GRE, GRE subject tests and TOEFL can be submitted electronically to UC’s institutional code 1833. IELTS scores may be sent directly from the test center through the mail or sent to UC electronically. Please note that PRAXIS tests are handled by individual graduate programs. Applicants should check with their program for how these scores are reported. Programs can access these electronic scores at

Programs should also check Document Imaging Services for student supplementary information. Please contact Jennifer Lansaw, Associate Registrar, for access.
