UCLA Transfer Admission Guide

The UCLA Transfer Admissions Guide provides admission selection and coursework information for junior-level transfer applicants. Refer toApplying for Admission for information about how to obtain an application and application filing deadlines.

Although UCLA is one of the most transfer-friendly campuses in the UC system, competition for transfer openings has increased in recent years. Strong academic preparation and performance are primary elements in our admission decisions. The average GPA of transfer applicants who are admitted to UCLA is more than 3.5 (GPAs do vary by program), and most students who are admitted have completed most or all of the preparatory coursework for their majors. We give highest priority to students who are transferring from California community colleges or other University of California campuses. All schools admit for the fall quarter only.

ASSIST.ORG (Course Articulation Website)

ASSIST is an online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at one public California college or university can be applied when transferred to another. ASSIST is the official repository of articulation for California’s public colleges and universities, and provides the most accurate and up-to-date information about student transfer in California. This is a terrific tool to use to keep track of how courses at one school transfer to another.
