Is the Common App an option for applying to UCLA?

Hey guys, I've been streamlining my college app process and trying to figure out which platforms the schools I’m interested in use. Can anyone tell me if UCLA accepts the Common Application? It would be really convenient to use a single platform for most of my applications.

Hello! To answer your question, no, UCLA does not accept the Common Application. UCLA is part of the University of California (UC) system, and all schools within this system use a separate application platform known as the UC Application. While this may seem inconvenient if you were hoping to use the Common App for all your applications, the UC Application allows you to apply to multiple UC campuses with just one application.

To ensure you stay organized, I would recommend starting the UC Application early and keeping a checklist of all required materials for each platform you'll be using. Additionally, since each platform has different essay prompts and requirements, make sure to allocate enough time to tailor your responses for the UC Application independently from your Common App essays. Good luck with your applications!
