UC Merced opened Sept. 5, 2005, as the newest campus in the University of California system and the first American research university of the 21st century.\\The University of California, Merced, has been designated a "doctoral-granting university with higher research activity" — or R2, the second-highest classification for American research universities — in its first appearance on the highly cited Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.\\Situated near Yosemite National Park, the campus significantly expands access to the UC system for students throughout the state, with a special mission to increase college-going rates among students in the San Joaquin Valley. It also serves as a major base of advanced research, a model of sustainable design and construction, and a stimulus to economic growth and diversification throughout the region.\\UC Merced entered a $1.3 billion public-private partnership (P3) that will double its footprint by 2020, making room for 10,000 students. The award-winning Merced 2020 Project addresses critical existing needs and space needed to accommodate increased access to the University. ----- The University of California’s Merced campus believes that encouraging learning, discovery and engagement are key to producing students who are successful in their future. This research campus also seeks to tie nature to learning, demonstrated by its aim to become the greenest campus in the country. The university offers a variety of academics with nearly 20 undergraduate majors like Literature and Cultures, Physics and Sociology. There are also over 20 minors available, as well as a handful of options for graduate studies. Admissions require that students have completed the required ACT Plus Writing Test or the SAT Reasoning Test. A 3.0 GPA or better is also required. The admissions policy reviews not only these numbers, but other academic accomplishments, any demonstrated leadership potential or service, academic participation, talents, experiences and interests. Tuition for any university can be costly, but the University of California—Merced offers financial aid in grants, federal and private loans, need- or merit-based scholarships and work-study. To apply for financial aid, students should submit a FAFSA, complete the University of California Application of Admissions and Scholarships and the Cal Grant GPA Verification form. With over 100 clubs and organizations at the University of California—Merced, student life is always active. And, with Yosemite National park just a couple of hours from campus, students have many opportunities for relaxation and exploration beyond the classroom.
