The Activities and Awards section of the UC Application will help give admissions officers a better picture of who you are outside of the classroom. The Coursework Other Than A-G lets you enter non-traditional classes that you couldn’t enter in the academic history section, but formed an important aspect of your education such as a Drafting course in architecture or a PE Dance course. The Educational Prep program refers to any enriching academic program that you may have participated in, including academic summer camps. Community Work refers to any unpaid volunteer work that you’ve done. Don’t just describe the place that you volunteered at, try to highlight all the responsibilities that you had. For Work Experience, only enter jobs where you actually got paid. Unlike the Common Application, the Awards and Honors that you list can be both academic and non-academic on the UC Application. Lastly, for Extracurriculars, enter all the leadership positions that you had throughout high school. Remember, for each section, you’re only allowed to list a total for five items so choose wisely. Also, be as accurate as possible about the amount of hours you enter for each.
