Personal statement and tips:
The personal statement prompts have changed
- During the week of Oct. 7, UC expects to post a PowerPoint Presentation that you can use to learn tips on how to best complete the application and how to present yourselves in your personal statement.
- As a reminder, the UC required writing exercise is not an essay. Here are some useful tips to share:
- Students should focus on themselves; they should use “I” statements
- Students should tell everything they want us to know, including what opportunities they had or didn’t have; what they made of the opportunities and resources available to them; what did they choose to do and why; what did they learn as result of what they choose to do; and, how did they take what they learned and applied it to other aspects of their life.
Application fee waivers:
UC will continue to waive application fees (for up to four campuses) for qualified students as a feature of the online application. If a student is denied a fee waiver on the application, the student should indicate that he wants to pay by mail and submit a College Board/NACAC fee waiver or a letter, which includes the family income and the number of people supported by that income, to the UC Application Center address provided on the receipt.
