UC Berkeley’s Molecular Toxicology Major will no longer be offered…

college bound


Beginning fall 2014, undergraduate students interested in specializing in toxicology will be admitted to a Molecular Toxicology emphasis in the department of Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology (NST).  Re-formulation of a “major” into an “emphasis” has been undertaken to foster a unifying theme in NST programs under an umbrella of metabolic biology, while continuing to allow for distinct interests (emphases). Required courses for graduating with an emphasis in toxicology will remain the same as with the major, but broader elective options will be encouraged. Students declaring before the end of the 2013/2014 academic year will be grandfathered into the major.

UC TAG Notification Dates……

The TAG campuses have agreed on the following schedule to release their TAG “decisions” to students. Some campus “decisions” will indicate if the student has been granted or denied the guarantee (those UC TAG campuses that provide a pre-evaluation), while other campus “decisions” will indicate the next steps a student will need to follow to ensure their guarantee, which will come when decisions are released in the spring. Here is the release schedule for this year:

November 1 – UCSB

November 5 – UCI

November 7 – UCSD

November 8 – UCR

November 15 – UCD & UCM



Sacramento State’s reputation as a welcoming campus for transfer students has gone national. U.S. News & World Report has ranked the University eighth among 1,200 campuses surveyed in the number of transfer students accepted.

The University accepted 3,556 transfer students for the Fall 2011 Semester, the period considered in the survey. Sac State ranks second in the California State University system for transfer student acceptance; CSU Northridge accepted 4,962. Full list:

Ed Mills, associate vice president for Student Affairs, Enrollment and Student Support, cites Sacramento State’s strong partnerships with the Los Rios Community College District – one of the state’s largest community college districts – and several other Northern California community colleges. “We are proud to be able to serve so many transfer students,” Mills says.

The energetic and welcoming presence of Mills and his staff at new-student orientation sessions emphasizes the personal touch that is a Sacramento State hallmark.

Shawn Ryan, who heads the orientation team, says his group of 40 student leaders undergoes considerable training and excels at making new students feel at home. The new students, in turn, “have wonderful things to say” about Sac State’s welcoming atmosphere.

Mills maintains that personal connection with students as he helps them successfully transition to university life. Vice President for Planning, Enrollment Management and Student Affairs Lori Varlotta lauds him for “working tirelessly to maintain access to Sacramento State to as many students as possible, even in financially challenging times.”

UC Waitlist??


All campuses, except Merced and possibly Berkeley, will use waitlists for their freshman pools. Davis, Irvine and San Diego will have a transfer waitlist, and Riverside will have a transfer waitlist for a small population of applicants. Santa Barbara is considering the option for transfers.

What students need to know:

  • They might receive waitlist offers from more than one campus. Students can be on more than one waitlist, but they will only be allowed to accept one offer for admission. Waitlist offers will be made by the end of March for freshman applicants and the end of April for transfers.
  • Once offered a spot on a waitlist, students must opt in by the stated deadline. Instructions for doing so will be included with the waitlist notification.
    • Transfers
      • Waitlist offers will be made by the end of April.
      • The waitlist opt-in deadline is May 15 (for the participating campuses: Davis, Irvine and San Diego) .
  • Waitlist notification status will be made no later than July 1.
  • 1. UC campuses strictly adhere to all stated deadlines.
  • 2. Even if they accept a waitlist offer at a UC campus (or several), students should submit a Statement of Intent to Register (SIR) by the stated deadline to a UC campus, or other institution to which they have been accepted, to ensure they have a place to attend in the fall. If they later accept an offer of admission from a UC campus where they have been waitlisted, they will forfeit their deposit at the first campus and must submit an additional SIR and enrollment deposit.
  • 3. UC Santa Barbara will send preliminary financial aid awards to students who opt in to the waitlist. UCLA and UC San Diego will provide financial aid awards once students are admitted from the waitlist.  For all other campuses, preliminary awards will be sent at the time students are notified of waitlist offers.
  • 4. SIRs of waitlisted students will be considered on time for purposes of housing and orientation, provided they are submitted by the deadline stated in the offer of admission.
  • 5. California applicants who are guaranteed admission through ELC or the statewide admission index, and don’t receive an admission offer from any campus to which they applied, will be in the referral pool even if they are on the waitlist at another campus.
  • 6. Campuses will still consider appeals received by the deadlines specified below. Applicants who feel they have grounds for an appeal should submit one, but they should keep in mind that the purpose of the appeal process is to address compelling new information or correct a possible oversight in the initial review. Students cannot appeal for a spot on the waitlist.
    • ****Transfer appeal deadline: May 15 (before May 15 for Santa Cruz)
