The University of California (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, each campus is unique. The academic programs that are offered, size of the student body, housing options, undergraduate research opportunities and physical environment are among the factors that contribute to the distinctive character of each campus. Transfer admission requirements vary by campus and by major as well. Academic preparation and grade point average are reviewed by campuses and programs as part of the selection process. These criteria vary from year to year and from campus to campus, based on the number and qualifications of applicants. Comprehensive UC transfer information is available at admission.
The UC considers an applicant to be a transfer student if the applicant has enrolled in a regular session at a college or university after high school. Students who meet this definition cannot disregard their college records and apply as freshmen. A student who takes a class or two during the summer term immediately following high school graduation is not considered a transfer
While at De Anza and prior to applying to the UC, students are advised 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 is not responsible for any changes the UC may make to this information after publication of this catalog. 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 UC campuses and individual programs is extremely competitive and may require students to meet more demanding standards. Minimum Requirements
To be considered for admission as a junior transfer, a student must meet the following criteria:
better in each course:
o Two transferable college courses
(4-5 quarter units or 3 semester
units each) in English composition o One transferable college course (4-5 quarter units or 3 semester
units each) in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning
o Four transferable college courses (4-5 quarter units or 3 semester units each) chosen from at least two of the following subject areas: arts and humanities, social and behavioral sciences, and physical and biological sciences
The above seven courses may be completed with a Pass/Credit/ Satisfactory grade if such designations are equivalent to a letter grade of C (2.0) or better. Additionally, AP exams with scores of 3, 4 or 5 can also be used. Please note: Only one of the two English composition/literature courses required can be met with an exam score.
If a student meets the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) prior to transferring, he or she may meet the seven-course pattern requirement.
All UC campuses recommend that students complete math and English as early as possible, though some highly recommend or require completion by the end of the fall term, one year prior to enrolling at UC. Lower-Division Transfers
Some UC campuses may admit a limited number of transfer students before they reach junior standing.
To learn if a UC campus will accept applications from lower-division transfers, visit how-to-apply/applying-as-a-transfer/.
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/Not Pass, unless the student
is transferring from a college or university that awards only pass credit
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 (fall, winter or spring)
Complete the following seven-course pattern, earning a grade of C or
