The University of California announced Wednesday morning that it will extend the undergraduate application deadline and grant fee waivers for students affected by recent wildfires.

Prospective applicants can request an extension from the original deadline, Nov. 30, to Dec. 15, and a fee waiver for up to four UC campuses will be automatically applied for students who receive extended deadlines. In order to request an extension, applicants must email [email protected] with their first and last name as it appears on their application and their reason for requesting an extension.

“We know this is a tremendously difficult time for prospective students and their families who have been impacted by the devastating wildfires,” UC President Janet Napolitano said in the press release. “This is one small way the university can offer support.”  

UC campuses will make further allowances, if appropriate, for students facing longer-term impacts of the wildfires, according to the press release.
