Davis

Highest priority admission consideration is given to junior-level California community college transfer applicants in all colleges and majors. To be a competitive candidate for admission, it is strongly recommended that you complete UC transfer requirements in the areas of English composition and mathematics by the end of fall term prior to enrollment. You must be well prepared with coursework in your intended major and strive to achieve your highest possible overall GPA in order to be most competitive.

Certain colleges and selective majors have higher overall GPA requirements, and applicants must complete prerequisite major courses with specified GPAs by the end of the spring term prior to fall transfer. Courses in selective majors must be taken for a letter grade with no grade less than C.
