Just thought I would start a thread for UC Santa Cruz transfers because I have not seen one. I understand some decisions will be released on March 17, 2019, in just 11 days!

    I couldn't find a thread for transfer admissions for this year so I thought I'd start one. I hear that admissions decisions have come out for Freshman. Have any transfer students started hearing yet?

    My daughter also said she 'almost had a heart attack' when that email came from UCSC about immunizations. No idea why they felt the need to send that before students know if they're admitted! Also, did anyone get a similar email from any other UC? My D applied to two other UCs and neither sent that, even though it's a UC-wide policy.

    No, my teen only got it from UCSC and not from 5 others she applied to.

    That's weird... I didn't get an email regarding immunizations. Interesting.

    Why is this forum in the UCSC sub forum when all the other transfer decisions are in the UC transfers forum?

    @jeetusSwo good question. It looks like possibly two different people started threads for this topic (see OP and first reply) and @Gumbymom edited one of them, maybe merging the two, so maybe she can explain?

    Last year some people found out a bit early, on today, about getting in so post if you hear today. Also read somewhere that decisions often released at 4 or 5pm.

    @kristinpete I think there was a lot of confusion as to which one was the real SC thread. I’m sure here will be super active tomorrow though lol

    I’ve looked at previous threads too and out of the UC’s, Santa Cruz is usually a slower board in comparisons to LA/SD/etc.

    Hopefully we actually get our decisions tomorrow lol

    Looked at the freshman applicants thread just now and really shocked at the denied and waitlisted profiles. Really great GPA and test scores and amazing EC's. Hopefully the transfers will be having better luck.

    Perhaps the reason they’re waitlisting so many freshman is because they’re saving those spots for us. I don’t remember the number specifically, but I read an article that said the UCs are required to admit a certain percentage of transfers.

    Hey everyone! Thought I'd leave a comment to bump this thread. Good luck! Hoping to hear back tomorrow!

    @DavisPls yes the UCs have a certain mandated number of transfers they are required to accept and I believe Santa Cruz has had some trouble hitting that mark so it is a priority for sure. Transfers for sure have an advantage these days over freshman applicants because its not quite as competitive. Not easy but not as crazy.
