Does UC Berkeley accept the Common App for admissions?

Hey everyone! I'm starting to get my college list together and I'm super into UC Berkeley. I know the application process can vary from school to school, so I'm just wondering if UC Berkeley uses the Common App? Or do I need to prepare for a separate application process for this school?

Hi there! UC Berkeley, along with all the University of California (UC) schools, does not use the Common Application. Instead, they have their own UC Application platform. This means you will need to prepare a separate application for UC Berkeley, but the good news is that this one application can be used to apply to multiple UC campuses if you're interested in others as well. The UC Application opens on August 1st and the submission period is from November 1st to November 30th for the following fall semester admissions. Make sure to start early so you have plenty of time to fill out the required information and perfect your personal insight questions. Good luck with your application! If you need any assistance navigating the UC Application, feel free to reach out.
