How freshman applicants should report international records
International students should use their international academic record to report ALL international coursework as it appears on their official records. Please have unofficial transcripts with you to use in filling out the UC application. To be considered for freshman admission, you must complete secondary/upper secondary school—earning superior marks in academic subjects—and receive a certificate of completion that grants you direct-entry access to university-level studies in your country.

All applicants are considered using the same admission requirements, including SAT and ACT testing, and are included in the same selection process. If you have attended both international and United States high schools, both your international and United States courses and grades will be considered. You may also be required to demonstrate English proficiency. Visit the Exams and Visas page for more information.
