TRANSFER TIPS & REQUIREMENTS
  • Start completing your math & English requirements. The UC places a high priority on students that complete transferable math & English courses early in their academic careers. 
  • The UC gives high priority to students who complete major preparation coursework early in their academic career. Look at www.assist.org for specific UC major requirements. Meet with a counselor or the UC representative to interpret the ASSIST articulation agreement by Major together. Enroll in Psychology Counseling 10 Career & Education Planning if you would like to set some career goals to help inform what kind of academic major you may want to pursue and help solidy your potential UC Major.
  • Six of the 9 UC campuses offer a UC Transfer Admission Guarantee! Learn about it early and partner with a counselor to develop an education plan that sets you up for that TAG when it is time to submit your UC Transfer Admission Planner for the TAG.
  • Complete 60 UC transferable semester units with a minimum 2.4 grade point average (2.8 for Non-residents) for minimum eligibility. The GPA for admission can be significantly higher due to the applicant pool. Along with math & English, and your major coursework, you are required to complete four courses in at least two of the following areas: Physical/Biological Sciences, Art/Humanities, Social/Behavioral Sciences. Meet with the UC transfer representative at the Transfer Center or your counselor for assistance.
  • The best way to keep track of your progress is through your UC Transfer Admission Planner at uctap.universityofcalifornia.edu. Create your account to start your path to the UC. You export this record into your UC application; it is also what the transfer representative reviews to tell how you are doing preparing for transfer, and the UC TAP is what you submit to seek a UC Transfer Admission Guarantee so it is highly recommended that you establish and maintain your UC Transfer Admission Planner.
  • Depending on your intended major at your intended UC campus(es), complete your general education (GE) requirements, usually by completing the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC). Meet with the UC transfer representative at the Transfer Center or your counselor to determine if this is right for you, given your intended UC major and UC destinations.
  • Apply on time! ALL UC’s accept junior transfer students in the Fall term, which requires you to apply a full year in advance. Some UC campuses accept Winter and Spring transfer applicants. Remember to submit your UC Transfer Admission Planner if you are seeking a UC Transfer Admission Guarantee.
