Confused about the UC Maximum Transfer Credit Limitation Policy? This information applies to intercampus (UC-to-UC) transfers and transfer students with four-year college credits. Empower yourself with knowledge so you can make informed decisions about your future.
August 2023 update: UCs have renamed the “Maximum Transfer Credit Limitation Policy” to “High-Unit Limits and Admission Policy” and moved the explanation into the Quick Reference Guide for UC Admissions (the short link in the video “askmssun.com/unit-cap” now directs you there). You can find a campus-by-campus unit limit chart and some additional information regarding the policy (under “Limits on Transfer Credit”) on page 37 of the PDF file. Examples of how to calculate the unit limit are provided on page 38 of the PDF file.
February 2021 update: UCs did a webinar for transfer counselors on how to advise “reverse transfers” that covered some specific issues and noteworthy problem areas for former UC students and students with four-year college credits. Access a recording of the webinar and the presentation slides (including presentation notes) here.
