For Summer 2017, over 3,500 applications were received for the four campuses. COSMOS is a very competitive program with an exceptional applicant pool. If you did not receive an admissions offer, we hope you are able to apply again in future years. If you have specific questions about your application, please contact the campus to which you applied.

As of April 2017, all credit card payments incur a 2.5% service fee. University banking policy dictates that we assess this charge separately from the deposit and tuition payments, thus you will be asked to submit two payments, 1) tuition and/or deposit, and 2) the 2.5% service fee. If you choose to pay by credit card, you must submit both the payment and the service fee before the stated deadlines for your admission to be complete. Alternatively, you may choose to avoid the 2.5% service charge, by mailing a check or money order, postmarked by stated deadline, to:
University of California
