Yes, applications must be received at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the term. It’s best, however, to begin the process as early as possible so you’ll have time to get all admissions documents in and can register for classes before they begin to fill up. If you wait two week prior to the beginning of the term to apply, you may not have time to get everything in and may not get the classes you need or prefer.
Candidates can be conditionally admitted to the University with written confirmation of test registration and can take up to 4 courses on the conditional Admittance. Keep in mind, however, that all admissions documents must be received by the end of the first 4 courses in order to continue taking coursework and that candidates cannot be admitted into Teacher Education without passing the entrance exam.
Applicants can review their Checklist on MyUC. Documents will be checked off as received in the Admissions Office.
