The University of California system is made up of nine undergraduate campuses where most students engage in research to enhance their classroom education. Transferring to a UC campus is a very competitive process. Students need to complete their major preparation courses as found on www.assist.org as well as their general education. Most campuses and majors accept IGETC to meet the general education requirements. Students should consult with a Pierce College Counselor and/or an University Representative to create an educational plan to meet their UC goals.
To transfer to a UC campus you must complete at a minimum: 60 UC transferable units, 2.4 GPA, & the seven course breadth pattern of general education:
- Two transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) in English composition
- One transferable college course (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units) in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning;
- Four transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) chosen from at least two of the following subject areas:
- arts and humanities
- social and behavioral sciences
- physical and biological sciences
To be a competitive applicant, please refer to your major requirements on www.assist.org as well as the Pierce College Transfer Statistics link to see the average admitted Grade Point Average by campus.
