Every website and their dog does this. I'm not sure why you're worried. It's probably so they can keep your login data saved, but check the privacy policy.

Here is a direct link to a 4 page PDF file that has full details of how UC's website privacy policy is used, including what they do with your cookie information, etc.


Good luck with your college admissions process.

I’d email the UC system not ask on an online forum composed of 99% high school students. I’d contact them either via email or call at the link below.


Also if you click the cookies button there is likely gonna be a why cookies button or a terms of service or a privacy policy button listed if you click on that button it’s should show there cookie policy and may answer your question.
