UC admits a record number of CA residents and underrepresented freshmen

On Aug. 8, UC announced that it admitted a record number of California freshmen to its incoming class of undergraduate students and its largest class of underrepresented freshmen in the system’s history for fall 2023, a total of 88,285 California freshmen. This represents an increase of 3.5 percent (3,017) over fall 2022 admissions numbers. Overall, the University accepted 157,446 applicants (129,685 freshmen and 27,761 transfer students).

These numbers demonstrate the continued interest undergraduate students have in attending a UC campus and their recognition of the benefits of a UC education in supporting their economic mobility, in addition to its relative affordability in comparison to other institutions. At the University, 55 percent of California undergraduates pay no tuition to attend.

“The University’s latest admissions data reflects our commitment to expanding opportunity and to ensuring that students of all backgrounds have a chance to attend one of our excellent undergraduate campuses,” said UC President Michael V. Drake, M.D. “We’re pleased to support thousands more Californians who wish to pursue a higher education, benefitting themselves and communities across the state.”
