Undergraduate Decisions for Fall Quarter 2012
Freshmen (72,600 applicants)
The decision site will go up in the early evening of Friday, March 23. Approximately15,500 applicants will be offered freshman admission from which we plan to yield 5,425 enrolled students.

Transfers (18,900 applicants)
Decisions will be available for most transfer students on April 20. The transfer enrollment target is the same as last year: 3,200 students. The number of transfer students we plan to admit to achieve that target will likely be in the ball park of 5,300.
Notification Method
A very large percentage of our applicant pool logs in to our decision site within 24 hours of its opening. We will send emails to those freshman applicants who have not checked to let them know that decisions are available online. All admitted applicants will also receive a paper admit letter in the mail.

Critical Information for 2012
Online Decision Site
This site will go live in the early evening of March 23rd. Most freshman decisions will be available today. We will inform any remaining freshmen on a rolling basis. Transfer applicants will be informed of their decisions in late April.
Applicants login to the decision site using their Last Name, Application ID*, Birth date, and Birth City.
* The Application ID is a 7-digit number assigned to applicants by the when they submit their applications. Students who do not know their Application ID can get it in several ways:
1. Look on the receipt that was emailed to them when they submitted their application
3. Contact the UC Application Processor: in California, call (800) 523-2048; outside California, call (925) 808-2180.
Accepting UCLA’s Admission Offer—Must be done online
URSA is where New Bruins (www.ursa.ucla.edu), can accept UCLA’s admission offer.
To Access URSA for the first time, new admits must activate a UCLA Logon ID/Password at https://logon.ucla.edu
Appeals from Denied Applicants
The appeal process will be online. Denied applicants will be able to login and submit a request, in their own words, that we reconsider their decisions. We will not accept letters of recommendation.Applicants who contact you regarding this topic should be told that for an appeal to have merit it must bring to light new academic and personal information, as well as information pertaining to extenuating circumstances, that had not been present in the application—information that clearly shows the student to be stronger than had been earlier evidenced. High grades received in the senior year, recently acquired awards, or an increase in activities is not a basis for the reversal of a decision. Also the appeal must be submitted by students, NOT by others (including parents) on their behalf. The number of decisions reversed on appeal will be extremely low.
Freshman appeal info: www.admissions.ucla.edu/AppealsFr.htmDenied freshman applicants will be able to logon to our site to submit an appeal between April 2 and April 15.
Transfer appeal info: www.admissions.ucla.edu/AppealsTr.htmNote: the transfer site will not contain information for Fall Quarter 2012 until late April. The window for submission will likely be in early May.
New This Year: UCLA’s Waitlist Process
This year, a select number of applicants will be offered a spot on our waitlist. These students will receive an option to be on the waitlist when they log into our decision site but must tell us definitively that they would like to be placed on the waitlist. They have until 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, April 15th to opt-in. Since offers to waitlisted students will be based entirely on the response from our initial admission offers, it is likely that we may not be able to notify them of their admission decision until after May 1st (and no later than June 1st). Students who are admitted off of the waitlist will be eligible for financial aid and housing.
