Private and Out-of-State Public Colleges
Each private/ out-of-state public school varies in subject and testing requirements. Each campus should be researched individually through college websites to identify the requirements for that school. Most private school requirements are similar to the UC requirements, but are not always the same. For more information on California private schools, visit: www.aiccu.edu
Many private schools (as well as some out-of-state public schools) use the Common App for their application process. Students will set up one Common App account, and can then apply to a number of schools from within that account.
The Common App will open on August 1st, 2014, please refer to website: commonapp.org
The deadlines for applications will vary amongst colleges. Some will offer early application options (with deadlines as early as October, but often in November), but most of the regular deadlines will be in January and February. Please refer to the Common App and the University website to confirm deadlines for all schools and programs.
**Please note that some programs such as art, music, theater, and film may have earlier "regular" deadlines as they often require a portfolio or audition.
