Statement on

Information Practices in California

The University of California (UC) and the University of California Education Abroad Program (UCEAP) use the information requested on the reciprocity application form to process your application for program admission, placement, and scholarships.  Response to most of the application questions is mandatory.  If you do not supply all of the mandatory information, the processing of your application will be delayed and possibly even prevented (your application will not be delayed if you do not complete those items that are optional).

UC/UCEAP Reciprocity considers the following information mandatory:

•    Full legal name
•    Applicant's entering level
•    Place and date of birth
•    Address, telephone number and email address
•    Citizenship information
•    Campus and major choices
•    Academic history including high schools and colleges attended, courses taken, grades and standardized test scores
•    Academic Statement

Information collected is disclosed to third parties – outside agencies that award scholarships; parents, legal guardians or spouses; school counselors; and UC organizations and alumni groups – only if the applicant grants authorization.

The State of California Information Practices Act of 1977 requires the UC/UCEAP to provide this information to applicants for admission who are asked to supply information about themselves.  Maintenance of the information is authorized by UC policy.
