Transfer Admission Overview

Transfer admission information is organized along the main criteria that the UCs consider: academic performance and extracurricular achievement. It also includes major and campus-based admission information, a general application timeline, as well as information on financial aid and other resources.

Academic Preparation

Academic Preparation reviews the general transfer requirements and information on AP credits, IGETC, GPA, and W/D/F grades.


Extracurriculars discusses the type of extracurricular activities that are appropriate for transfer applicants and provides some information on UC-sponsored summer programs.

Admission Information

Aside from general admission criteria, you must also consider admission preferences of your selected UC campuses and your intended major. Admission Information presents these campus-specific and major-specific guidelines, admission stats, Transfer Admission Guarantees, and other admission preferences such as veteran status.

Application Timeline

Application Timeline provides advice regarding the UC application process and includes information on general guidelines, fee waiver, transfer academic update, waitlist information, and deferred enrollment, to name a few.

Financial Aid

Financial Aid goes over the basics of how to pay for college, directs you to tools and resources for government and UC financial aid (also information for AB 540 students), and provides a list of scholarship search sites.


Resources is a compilation of everything else ranging from UC recruitment tools to online college reviews to California community college transfer stats.
