UC Irvine, Calif.
— UCLA has announced it is changing the admissions process for the next two years and is changing what it means to be admitted.
The change, which is coming at the start of the academic year, will result in a process for students that is different than the one currently being used.
Instead of the usual application process, the new system will include an online interview and the approval of a school’s letter of intent.UCLA is currently recruiting a handful of students who have already completed their undergraduate courses, but students are not required to complete the process, which will be phased in over the next several years.
It will be a time for students to learn about the university, its research, and the work being done in their area of interest, the university said in a statement.
The new system, which starts in 2019, is designed to allow students to plan their admissions and to learn more about the admissions program.
The university also said it will work with colleges and universities across the country to improve their admissions processes.
The university announced last month that it had accepted the first of the approximately 200 applications it received for the 2019-2020 academic year.
