Get a head start on your transfer

Community college is a smart choice. You can stay close to home, save money—and still make progress toward a UC degree.

In fact, almost one third of our students are transfers. And almost all of them come from California community colleges. If you prepare ahead of time, you can even get a guaranteed place in your major at one of our six participating campuses.

Even so, it’s important you make the right preparations to transfer. That’s where we come in. We’ll help guide you through the process, and give you the best chance of getting into your ideal campus and major.

What do you get out of it? A great degree from the world’s leading public university.

What do we get out of it? You. A driven student. Someone who’s already proved they can work hard, balance commitments and think long-term about their future. What university wouldn’t want that?

Who can transfer?

You can transfer if you’re enrolled in a regular session (fall, winter or spring) at a college or university after high school graduation. The exception is if you’re only taking a couple of classes during the summer after graduation.
