    I just applied to the UC PhD IT program and I'm waiting for my transcripts to show up. While I'm waiting, does anyone know what classes the WGU MS CSIA degree transfers in as? I'm just curious if it will knock any classes off my list, or if I'm going to have to slog my way through the entire program. I'm still going to do it either way, but it's nice to have a plan ahead of time.

    I expect to finish my Master's in April 2022 and UC is definitely on my list for potential PhD programs. Really glad to see everyone's experiences.

    Hi everyone,

    Where do you find the requirements for the written interview? I just submitted my application and I cannot find any info about this or any place to upload the answer on Self service either!

    I haven't had anyone ask me to submit a written interview yet, and I'm allegedly fully admitted. I'm even enrolled into my first two classes, though I haven't received a billing statement yet, nor have I been contacted from the financial aid department regarding my FAFSA yet. I'm assuming that will likely happen once we get through the July 4th holiday weekend.

    I'm also enrolled in 2 classes for the fall semester but haven't heard anything regarding books, which concerns me because given everything with shipping right now, I don't want to star the program without the needed materials. I spoke with the VA rep who is very responsive and he said he would file the finances near the end of July.

    I updated my FAFSA last week and added UC to it. Today I got an email from finance to accept the student loans and do the mandatory onboarding training. I still don't have a book list, but there's still time for that.

    That's good to hear for you! Last time I logged in (few days ago) I saw my 2 classes but when I clicked on them, there wasn't much in the way of even a book list nor syllabus, etc. I figure when the funding part is finalized and as time gets closer to the start date, those things will open up and/or allow us to get our books ordered.

    Yeah, I'd love to get the book list early so I can get a jump-start on the upcoming semester. By the way, I sent an email to the financial aid team a couple days after updating my FAFSA to verify that they got it. That seemed to help kick the process into motion, so I'd recommend you doing the same if you're still waiting for them.

    I ended up going onto the UC bookstore, put in the first class I am registered for and it gave me the book list.

    I got the booklist by emailing the professor. He sent me the booklist, but he's still working on the syllabus.
