Coronavirus Information from Undergraduate Admissions

UC Davis is closely monitoring the situation on our campus and around the world. We are acting to keep our students safe and offering support within our community to all students during this time.

We understand that many of our prospective and admitted students have been directly impacted by the coronavirus in different parts of the United States and the world. We hope you and your families are safe and healthy.

Please continue to check this page as well as our main coronavirus information page for the latest updates regarding UC Davis.

Campus Tours
To protect the health and safety of our guests and campus community, we are ceasing all student-led campus tours until further notice. While our Welcome Center is currently closed, we are happy to answer your questions through Ask an Advisor. Please visit our website for the latest information. 

Admitted freshman students

Congratulations to all our newly admitted students on gaining acceptance into one of the top five public universities in the United States!

Admitted student events

To safeguard the health and safety of our campus community and our admitted students, and to comply with local and national directives, we are curtailing our on- and off-campus, in-person events. Our annual admitted student open house is moving online! Admitted students and families, counselors and community members can join our online Aggie Experience Live! event to learn about our friendly campus, comprehensive support resources and next steps for admitted students.

Please check our Aggie Experience Live! page for updates.

We will also be offering opportunities for personal digital interaction with an admission advisor and other campus staff. Keep on the lookout for these opportunities and take advantage of them to get to know us better and have your questions answered!

Testing, graduation and school materials access

Some of our applicants and admitted students may be attending schools that are temporarily closed. Your end of year exams may also be canceled or have the potential to be canceled. Please know that Undergraduate Admissions is keeping abreast of announcements from testing authorities and will update you on how to best navigate through the conditions of admission as soon as we are able. In the meantime, if there is a situation that you would like to make us aware of, please contact us​ via MyAdmissions.

International students and visas

International students need visas to study in the United States, and we understand that travel restrictions or other concerns may impact visa preparation or travel plans. Admitted students should proceed with visa requests as usual. UC Davis Services for International Students and Scholars (SISS) handles any questions about the visa process. Please visit the SISS website for more information.

Our campus is closely monitoring the global travel situation. We are hoping that improvements in the situation may allow current travel recommendations to be eased in the coming months, and that the visa process will be smooth this year for all incoming students.

Prospective students and applicants

UC Davis Undergraduate Admissions is continuing the usual rollout of transfer admission notifications in mid- to late April. The global uncertainty surrounding coronavirus has not changed our application review or admission process.

We understand that some of our applicants and prospective students have been affected by the coronavirus outbreak, including school closures, travel restrictions and shelter-in-place or quarantine measures. The thoughts of our office and our community are with you in this time of uncertainty.

Undergraduate Admissions is monitoring school closures and government actions in California, the nation and around the world. We will work with individuals as needed to stay on track with the admissions process and make sure everyone has the information they need.

We will share more coronavirus information and updates, when available. If you have questions, please contact us
