Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of Summer Session 2021, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page.  We anticipate a return to campus for Fall 2021.

Paper document submission

Can I submit the Statement of Purpose, Personal History Statement or C.V. / résumé by paper instead of online?

No. These items must be submitted ONLINE ONLY, along with the online admission application. Make certain that these are included online, along with your admission application, before you submit your application. If any of these items is not included online with your application, your application will be permanently incomplete. The system has no provision for you to add them after the application has been submitted, and paper versions are not acceptable, without exception.
