Berkeley

Transfer applicants must complete at least 60 semester (90 quarter) units by the end of the spring term prior to transfer. Students transferring to the Haas School of Business and the Colleges of Letters and Science, Engineering, Environmental Design and Chemistry must complete all required units and prerequisites.

Haas School of Business

Applicants are screened for completion of at least 60 transferable semester units (90 quarter units). All of the required courses must be completed by the end of the spring term prior to starting at the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business. Applicants must complete the foreign language requirement prior to transfer. Seven-course breadth is not required for admission to the Haas Undergraduate Program, however, students are encouraged to spread breadth coursework over 4 years. IGETC does not satisfy these requirements.

Applicants are selected on the basis of academic performance (particularly in prerequisite courses), writing skill, interest in the degree program and knowledge of contemporary business issues (assessed through essays), and extracurricular activities and/or work experience demonstrating leadership ability (assessed through a required résumé, which will be requested after submission of the application). Prospective students should use the personal insight questions to discuss their educational and career objectives in relation to their intended major.

College of Chemistry

Applicants are screened for academic performance, completion of major prerequisites, Reading and Composition and content of the personal statement. Prospective students should use the personal statement to discuss their educational and career objectives in relation to their intended major.

College of Engineering

Applicants are screened for academic performance (in particular, COE requires strong preparation in math and physical sciences), completion of major prerequisites, general education requirements and content of the personal insight questions. Prospective students should use the personal insight questions to discuss their educational and career objectives in relation to their intended major.

Transfer applicants are screened for completion of all prerequisite courses and required units by the end of the preceding spring term. Applicants must have a minimum 3.3 GPA and have completed the equivalent of all required core UC Berkeley preparation courses (see assist.org) to be eligible for admission. If a series of courses is required, all courses in the series must be completed to receive credit. No partial credit is given.

The Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) offered at California community colleges is not accepted as completion of breadth.

College of Environmental Design

Applicants are screened for academic performance, completion of major prerequisites and general education requirements, and content of the personal statement.

College of Letters and Science

Applicants are screened for academic performance, completion of major prerequisites, lower-division general education requirements (which must be completed by the end of the preceding spring term for fall admission) and content of the personal insight questions. Prospective students should use the personal insight questions to discuss their educational and career objectives in relation to their intended major.

Transfer applicants must complete the following by the end of their spring term, prior to fall matriculation: the equivalent to UC Berkeley's Reading and Composition R1A and R1B; a transferable quantitative reasoning (QR); and Language Other than English (LOTE). RIA/RIB, QR, and LOTE can be completed via articulated college courses or through a full IGETC Certificate from a California community college.

College of Natural Resources (CNR)

Transfer applicants are screened for academic performance, completion of major prerequisites and content of the personal statement. Prospective students should use the personal insight questions to discuss their educational and career objectives in relation to their intended major. Prospective students who have questions in advance of the application are encouraged to contact the Office of Instruction & Student Affairs to speak with the advisor of their intended major.

Though IGETC does not fully satisfy lower-division requirements for most CNR majors, students may use a completed IGETC to satisfy Berkeley's Reading and Composition requirement and certain breadth requirements for some majors (Conservation and Resource Studies, Environmental Economics and Policy, and Environmental Sciences). Students may find they can take fewer courses overall if they focus on fulfilling the lower-division requirements for their CNR major. Most of the relevant articulated course listings can be found at www.assist.org. Students should complete the courses approved for Berkeley's Reading and Composition requirement if they do not complete IGETC.
