UC application deadline extended after 'technical difficulties', University of California says

SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The University of California is extending the deadline for UC applications after "technical difficulties" the night before the Nov. 30 due date.

University of California undergraduate admissions first tweeted they were experiencing site outages around 5:45 p.m. after prospective students complained on social media about not being able to access the website.

Officials announced the filing period for Fall 2021 has been extended to 11:59 p.m. PST on Friday, Dec. 4.

The University of California Board of Regents voted Thursday to suspend the use of SAT and ACT scores for students applying for admission as freshmen to its nine campuses, which include UCLA and UC Irvine, until fall 2024.



Though the university offered more time to turn applications in, they urged students not to procrastinate.

"However, we do encourage applications to be submitted as soon as possible! If you can, please don't wait to apply until the new deadline date," officials replied in a tweet.
