Transfer to the University of California

The University of California is home to more than 222,000 students and, annually, welcomes more than 14,000 California community college transfer students.  


The University of California has nine undergraduate campuses plus the UC San Francisco, which offers professional programs and graduate degrees.  Its academic offerings span 150 disciplines, with more departments ranked in the top 10 nationally than any other public or private university.


If you are planning to transfer to the UC you should become familiar with the requirements for admission, general education, major preparation, and selective majors.  You should select courses at De Anza College that will make you eligible and competitive for admission as a transfer.


There are transfer tools and tips available on the UC Transfer Admission Web site.  The site explains what you need to do to transfer and how you can choose course that will maximize your chances of being admitted to the UC.


Students are advised to consult with a De Anza College counselor or academic adviser as early as possible to confirm your choice of classes and to develop an education plan for transfer.


Visit the Meet with a Counselor page to view the academic services available through the De Anza College Counseling & Advising Center or stop by the Counseling & Advising Center located on the 2nd floor of the Registration & Student Services Building during hours of operation.
