Each year the UC system provides the "Checklist for UC Admits" to better assist, prominently first-generation, students to prepare for their enrollment in the UC. Students will not begin to hear of their admission till March. This tool will help students navigate through the varied tasks, deadlines, and expectations of their admission. In addition, you will find a list of resources for every UC campus. This year's checklist has been expanded to include in depth the requirements specific to undocumented students.

As students learn of their admission to a UC campus, it is imperative that they understand that their admission is conditional. Each UC admitted student will be directed to their student portal to familiarize themselves with their "Conditions of Admission". Failure to meet the "Conditions of Admission" will result in the cancellation of their admission. If a student is experiencing academic difficulties their last year, in particular their last semester, they should without hesitation contact the UC to which they have been admitted – immediately.

Wildlife Biology Program
