Once again, UC Irvine has received more college applications from California high school seniors than any other university in the UC system. More than 72,000 college-bound students currently residing in the state are hoping to receive an acceptance letter from the Anteaters. That’s 2,000 more than last year, when the university received more applications than the system’s other eight undergraduate schools.

More than 122,000 students, incoming and transfer students from California and out of state have applied for the fall 2020 semester. Only UCLA received more total applications this year.

“These outstanding numbers are a testament to our success in advancing our mission,” said Chancellor Howard Gillman. “We exist to provide the best education possible to the people of our state, regardless of their circumstances. I am grateful to the thousands of my UCI colleagues who every day work hard to help fulfill the dreams of our students.”
