UC extends application deadline
Placeholder Image
The University of California, Merced has pushed back the undergraduate deadline to apply for Spring 2010 to Aug. 17.
“While many universities have been forced to reduce enrollment growth, we are able to maintain our enrollment while continuing to offer students the services, classes and individual attention they need,” said Kevin Browne, assistant vice chancellor for enrollment management. “That is something students and their families are finding reassuring in these uncertain times.”
Campus officials have already seen a spike in fall enrollment with a 27-percent increase in freshmen selecting to attend over Fall 2008, and a 94-percent increase over Fall 2007.
“By extending the spring application period, we can provide access to all academically eligible students,” Browne said. “We want to make sure that all qualified students know that UC Merced has a place for them.”
