Students Can Now Update Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) Optional Demographic Info in Student Record

Now UCR students can update this information, or add info if they were admitted to UCR before 2016, by using R'Web Self-Service. The UCR update form also expands the answer options compared to the UC Admissions Application form. Answering SOGI demographic questions is always optional.This information as a group will help UCR develop resources for a more inclusive campus environment. Individual student info, like all student record info, is protected by federal privacy laws. Check out the FAQs regarding SOGI data by clicking here .
