Payment is required and is non-refundable. The University prefers credit card payments. You may apply online for a fee waiver only once ( good for up to 4 campuses). If you apply for more than four campuses, you must select a payment method (credit card, or pay by mail) to pay the application fees for the additional campuses.

7. After You Submit: Update Your Application

Transfer Academic Update (TAU) Priority Deadline – January 31

www.universityofcalifornia.edu/admissions/how-to-apply/after-you-apply/update-transfer-application/

About 5 weeks after the filing period closes, transfer students are required to update their grades and course records. You must provide your final grades from the previous term and list all courses in progress or planned for the term before you expect to enroll. Your updates will ensure UC campuses have the most current academic information available.
