Academic history

Transfer applicants must complete the academic history section of the UC application.

The self-reported record provides an accurate history of the applicant's academic performance in college, which will be used for preliminary review of the application.

All college/university courses taken or planned should be listed, regardless of length of attendance or whether the student thinks the course will be transferable and regardless of the type of grade earned (W, AR, NP, etc.).

If students have entered their school and coursework information in the UC Transfer Admission Planner (UC TAP), that information will be available for import into the UC application for admission. Applicants will need their UC TAP login ID and email used for the UC TAP when requested in the application.

Accuracy matters

Students should refer to transcripts and grade reports to complete the academic history. Be sure to tell them not to work from memory — it's important that all the information requested be included and that the information is accurate. The information on the self-report will be verified when the student's official transcripts are received.

Updating the application

Transfer students who apply for admission will be asked to log in and update their grades and coursework in the online application, which allows applicants to give UC their final grades from the previous term, as well as a list of all courses in progress or planned for current and upcoming terms.
