Your grade point average is only one factor UC campuses use to evaluate you. Other factors, such as course patterns and major preparation, also are considered.
The average grade point average (GPA) of transfer applicants varies widely by campus and by major. The transfer profiles can give you an idea of the average GPA of admitted transfer students at each campus.
Grades of D
A grade of D (include plus/minus) in a transferable course will count toward the number of transferable units you have completed. However, you must earn a grade of C or better when completing the transfer eligibility course pattern described in Minimum Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students. And, in most cases, grades of D do not satisfy major or general education requirements.
Pass/fail, credit/no credit grades
A course in which you earn a grade of pass or credit may be used to clear a subject requirement if your college certifies that a grade of pass or credit is equivalent to a grade of C or better. No more than 14 semester (21 quarter) units taken pass/fail and/or credit/no credit may be used to satisfy the minimum eligibility requirements. Some colleges and departments require letter grades for prerequisite major courses.
