*UC campuses are selective in their admissions criteria. Meeting minimum admissions requirements will allow you to apply to the campuses and merit an application review. However, it does not necessarily mean that you will be selected or admitted to the campus. Often, admission to UC campuses and/or programs is competitive and requires students to satisfy more demanding standards.
