Nearly 30% of University of California (UC) undergraduates are transfer students, with 92% coming from a California community college. The UC campuses at Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Merced, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara and Santa Cruz all share the same minimum admission requirements; however, transfer admission requirements vary by campus and by major. Academic preparation and grade point average are factors reviewed by campuses and programs as part of the selection process. These criteria vary from year to year and by campus based on the number of applicants, their academic qualifications and the number of spaces available. Information about UC transfer
requirements is available at: admission. requirements/transfer-requirements/
While at De Anza College and prior to applying to a UC campus, students are encouraged to research campus catalogs and websites, contact UC campus admissions offices, and consult with a counselor or academic adviser to confirm appropriate course selection for admission.
The following information was taken from the UC Quick Reference for Counselors guide. De Anza College is not responsible for any changes the UC may make to this information after publication of this catalog.
The UC considers a transfer applicant to be a student who has enrolled in a fall, winter or spring term at a college or university after high school graduation. Students who meet this definition cannot disregard their college records and apply as freshmen.
Additionally, transfer students should consider their choice of General Education (GE) pattern. A combination of major preparation and GE courses will help students meet the minimum admission requirements and prepare them for upper- division study after transfer.
When requirements are stated as a full- year sequence, students should complete the entire course series at one institution before transferring, if possible. The topics covered in a particular term of the sequence at a college or university may not be the same as at a UC campus and could result in missing or duplicative coursework.
Since admission to a number of campuses and majors is highly competitive, transfer students must often exceed the minimum requirements and complete all or at least a portion of the major preparation requirements to gain admission to a preferred campus and major.
Admission Requirements for Junior-Level Transfers
The majority of transfer students come to UC at the junior level from California community colleges. The requirements described below represent the minimum academic standards all students must attain to be considered for admission to UC. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to UC. Admission to the campus or program of choice often requires students to meet more demanding standards.
Minimum Requirements
To be considered for admission as a junior transfer, a student must meet the following criteria:
■ Complete 90 quarter (60 semester) units of UC-transferable college credit with a GPA of at least 2.4 (2.8 for nonresidents). No more than 21 quarter (14 semester) units of the required 90 units
may be taken Pass/No Pass,
unless the student is transferring from a college or university
that awards only pass credit. Consult with a De Anza College counselor or academic adviser
or UC admissions representative
to learn about UC’s “Temporary Modifications to Transfer Admission Requirements Due to COVID-19.” Additional information about
UC’s COVID-19 response as it relates to undergraduate admission can be found at admission. covid-19.html.
■ Be in good academic standing (2.0 GPA or better) at the last institution of attendance and at any previous UC campus where the student was enrolled in a regular term (e.g., fall, winter, spring)
■ Complete the following seven-course pattern, earning a grade of C or better in each course:
Two transferable college courses (4-5 quarter units each or 3 semester units each) in English composition
