UC Santa Cruz Not Accepting Applications for Winter 2011
UC Santa Cruz has just made a decision about Winter 2011 admission. They are planning to send out communication through their Slug Connection. If you haven’t signed up for their newsletter, I recommend you do so today.
The following notice went out to all community college counselors from the UCSC’s Admissions office.
Breaking News – UC Santa Cruz Not Accepting Applications for Winter 2011
UC Santa Cruz will not be accepting applications from upper-division transfer students for winter 2011, as was originally planned.
The number of fall 2010 transfer students who accepted their offers of admission was much larger than anticipated. With this unprecedented increase, UCSC has met its transfer enrollment goal for the academic year 2010-11. Given our commitment to quality and access to student resources, we will need to close for winter.
UCSC will be accepting applications from new freshmen and new transfer students for fall 2011 in November 2010.
What does this mean for community college students?
Students at community colleges should plan on transferring in the fall semester to a four year university. However, there are a few schools remaining that will be accepting winter or spring transfers for the 2011 academic year. I would encourage you to contact the individual school you are interested in attending to find out if they will be accepting mid year transfers. You can find most of the California 4-year universities contact information on our college directory.
College Majors: “Contact the school you are wanting to transfer to directly for specific application dates and times if you are not choosing a public college.”
