University of California (UC) Transfer Requirements
There are nine UC campuses that offer both undergraduate and graduate education. One third of UC students are transfers, and California community college transfers are prioritized over other transfers. By attending Santa Ana College you can stay close to home, save money, and make progress towards a UC degree. We offer programs such as U-Link that guarantee admission to UC Irvine upon completion of requirements, and University Transfer Center workshops on how to take part in the UC Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program. See below for a brief overview of UC transfer requirements:
Complete the 7-course IGETC pattern by the end of the spring term prior to fall enrollment at UC
Complete at least 60-semester units of UC-transferable credit.
Earn at least a 2.4 GPA in UC-transferable courses (2.8 if you are a nonresident). Keep in mind that some majors require a higher GPA for admission selection.
Complete the required/recommended courses needed for your intended major with the minimum grades. Visit ASSIST to view major preparation coursework expected by each campus.
