UC's graduate student academic applications, admits and new enrolls by degree program type, citizenship, gender, ethnicity and discipline can be viewed on the UC Information Center.

The graduate admission file contains data on all applicants for admission as graduate students in the Fall Quarter (Term) from all ten UC campuses. An applicant is defined as anyone who submits an appropriate application form and pays an application fee. This includes all professional school applicants who applied through an outside application vendor (e.g., AMCAS, PHARMCAS).
