Planning out your transfer admission

Admission to the university as a community college transfer is a cost-effective way to earn your bachelor's degree. A successful transfer requires thoughtful research and planning to make sure you're ready for the rigors of upper-division studies at a top-tier university. 加州银河游戏官方网 and the 加州大学 offer several resources to help you position yourself for admission to a UC campus.


加州大学的 转移途径 roadmap helps you prepare for any of the university’s most popular majors, by standardizing the preparatory coursework required by all UC campuses.


Identify which California community college courses will transfer or fulfill requirements for admission, general education or your major with the 协助 website, the official articulation database for California's public colleges and universities.

If you are attending a college other than a California community college, you can determine which courses may be UC-transferable by comparing your college's course descriptions with similar courses at 加州银河游戏官方网 or at another UC campus. If the descriptions match, the coursework is most likely UC-transferable. 在你申请加州银河游戏官方网之后, our admission advisors will evaluate your transcripts to arrive at a final determination of which courses are transferable.

Selecting a General Education Pattern

Your selection of a general education (GE) pattern is an important decision about courses required for graduation that guarantee a well-rounded education. 你有两个选择:

As you consider these two patterns, please keep in mind that completion of a general education pattern is required for graduation—这不是入学的必要条件.

IGETC is available to students transferring from a California community college, allowing them to complete the UC or California State University general education requirements. 除了一些例外, students choosing the IGETC pattern should complete it at their California community college. 学生 successfully admitted to 加州银河游戏官方网 should submit a certificate of IGETC completion to 加州银河游戏官方网 本科招生 before enrolling.

The 加州银河游戏官方网 GE pattern is required of transfer students from institutions other than California community colleges and those not completing the IGETC pattern. This pattern is best for students applying to majors with a high number of lower-division requirements.
