    Undergraduate students affected by the recent wildfires in California may qualify for an application extension and fee waiver at University of California  and California State University campuses, school officials announced Wednesday.

    UC President Janet Napolitano says this is one small way the university can offer support following deadly and destructive wildfires in Northern and Southern California.

    "We know this is a tremendously difficult time for prospective students and their families who have been impacted by the devastating wildfires," Napolitano said in a statement.

    For those who qualify, the original deadline of Nov. 30 will now be extended to Dec. 15.
