deadline to submit documents coming up


The Office of Admissions admitted you to UC Merced with a set of conditions that must be met to ensure that your admission offer will remain intact. View the Conditions of Admission for first year and transfer students. Notify the Office of Admissions immediately of any changes to the courses that were reported on your application and subsequent communications or updates, including the Transfer Academic Update.


If you’re unsure about which documents you need to submit, view your checklist on the my.ucmerced.edu student portal and visit our guide to required documents.


When the Office of Admissions receives the checklist items you submit, your checklist will be updated to reflect the date we received them.

NOTES FOR ENTERING TRANSFER STUDENTS:


If you reported AP or IB examinations passed with acceptable scores on your application, it is recommended that you have your official test scores sent to the Office of Admissions as a condition of your admission. If AP exams appear on your checklist on the my.ucmerced.edu student portal, they are required, and you must contact the appropriate testing agency immediately to have your official scores sent to the Office of Admissions.
