Before your senior year

To prepare for UC application and admission, it’s important to know our admission requirements and set up a plan of study with your counselor. You will also want to get involved in extracurricular activities, think about college finances and learn more about our campus through an in-person visit, by attending a college fair or joining us at one of our events for prospective students and their families.
