Students hoping to attend the University of California next year now have extra time to submit undergraduate applications. The university has expanded the submission window to include October, according to a statement from the university’s president.

The move expands the application window by a month, as the application deadline remains the same. The submission period is now from Oct. 1 through Nov. 30.

“We recognize that the application period can be stressful and confusing, which is why we hope the expanded timeline will allow prospective students to work on their applications earlier and afford them the opportunity to research the campuses that best align with their aspirations for college,” said Han Mi Yoon-Wu, executive director of undergraduate admissions at University of California.

The application window for the 2023-24 school year opened in August.

Anyone interested in applying can find more information on the application process by emailing the University of California application center or calling 800 207-1710.
