UC Transfer Admission Requirements

The University has a common set of requirements which specify minimum eligibility, in terms of subject and scholarship level, for admission as a transfer student. Students must earn at least a 2.40 overall GPA to be minimally eligible to transfer. However, several campuses and majors have additional requirements (i.e., "selection criteria") that may go well beyond minimum eligibility, and usually include a higher GPA and/or completion of lower division major preparation courses. This is particularly true for programs where the number of applications greatly exceeds the number of spaces available. It is imperative that transfers applying to such campuses and majors meet these additional requirements so they are competitive for admission.
