 Answers for Transfers
Thank you for your interest in the University of California.
As the state’s premier public university, we welcome more than 14,000 California community
college transfer students each year. Transfer students are a vital part of our campus, and we are
committed to helping them succeed.

In the following pages you’ll find detailed information about the University’s admission and
selection policies, application procedures and financial aid — all the tools you need to take the
next step toward a UC education.

Whether you are just beginning at community college or are well on your way to transfer, it is
very important to work closely with an academic adviser or Transfer Center adviser:

     • Develop, then follow, an academic advisement plan and meet with your counselor at least
       once a year as your academic interests develop or change.

     • Begin English and mathematics courses early in your college career. These courses are
       key to transfer success.

     • Follow recommended course placement; do not jump ahead and take college-level
       courses before you are prepared to succeed.

     • Select a major prior to transfer and complete as many preparation courses as possible.
       ASSIST and the UC Transfer Preparation Paths are tools that can help you determine
       which courses to take. You’ll find more information about these on page 15.

No matter which UC campus you choose to attend, you will be surrounded by internationally
respected faculty and bright, capable students from around the world. At your doorstep will be a
vibrant social, cultural, athletic and artistic community, as well as a range of support services to
help you succeed.

A UC education is a sound investment in your future: the skills you learn and the personal and
professional connections you make will pay lifelong dividends. At UC, you will become part of
a thousands-strong network of dedicated, accomplished people who use their talents every day to
improve life in California and across the globe.

Come shape the future with us.

it apart. There are many factors to consider:
the academic programs (not all majors are
available at all campuses), the campus setting
and the size of the student body, to name just
a few. You may also want to think about the
distance from your home, the surrounding
community, and the cultural and recreational
activities available. Try to visit the campuses
you’re considering. They all offer tours and
programs for prospective students.
    Whether you begin classes at UC’s fi rst
campus or its newest, whatever your major,
you will be among the most talented and
motivated students to attend any university.
