Due to the high volume of email inquiries, applicants will not receive a personalized response. Over the last few years, we have found that for 99% of the responses to these inquiries can be found on our FAQ admission webpage (https://www.cs.ucla.edu/graduate-admission-frequently-asked-questions/). Most questions can be answered by simply reviewing or searching a topic, such as GRE, TOEFL, official transcripts, personal statement, letters of recommendation and document status on the above webpages.
In the rare instance when a question is not answered on one of the above webpages or in the general response below, a personalized email response may be provided.As a courtesy, please do not send the same question to multiple staff/faculty throughout the CS Department. Please send your question that is not listed on the Grad FAQ webpage to the CS Grad Student Affairs Office only. As noted in the above webpages, applicants are asked not to make email or phone inquiries about the receipt of documents. Doing so will delay our efforts to process application material.
**GRE Requirement for Fall 2022-2023 Admissions Cycle Only**
Students who wish to apply for admission to our graduate program for the 2022-2023 academic year (applications for this cycle are due December 1, 2021) are not required to take the GRE or submit a GRE score report as part of their application package. However, students may voluntarily submit GRE test scores and they will be reviewed as part of the holistic application consideration. The applications with GRE scores will not be given greater weight than those that do not include scores.
