How hard is it to transfer within the UC system?

Is it harder than transferring from a UC to a private school? #college #major

Thank you comment icon I know some people that have been a student at one UC and have been able to take a few classes at another one. So if one's reason for wanting to transfer is that they want to take certain classes that only the other UC offers, they wouldn't necessarily need to transfer at all. Ari Geary-Teeter

Hi Mitra!


This is a very broad question. I'm not sure if I can answer it 100% without knowing more details about you( Are you in high school? College? Where do you go for school? What do you want to study? GPA/Test scores? Which schools are you targeting? Are you part of any extra curricular/leadership activities?)


As a California native I went through the process of applying to UC'sa few years and here are some things to think about. (YES it's a painful process! I sympathize with you. But it's totally worth it once the acceptance letters come in!)



  1. Do you have a good GPA/test scores? If you have high scores/GPA it shouldn't be as hard( it still can be challenging depending on how competitive the school is) to transfer to another UC or private school.

  2. Also you want to factor in how competitive the schools are. If you are trying to get into UCLA, UC Berkley, UCSB, UCSD, or UC Davis those are more competitive and you have to have high GPA/test scores and good extra curricular activities to get into those. UC Riverside, UC Merced, and UC Santa Cruz are easier to get into if you have decent scores/GPA.

  3. As for private schools that's super broad, which school are you looking at? Some are easy to get into and other are SUPER hard to get into due to prestige and what not.


I hope this helps you out! Feel free to reach out if you have any further questions in the comments below! Have a nice day. :)

You need to make sure when you are transferring from UC to a private college that they will take your credits from that institution. Before you make the decision make sure you do our homework before going. Talking with the advisors at the school might also help. If you are going to lose too much credits.
Before you apply to an college you need to make sure that you have GPA and test scores that will help you.
