UCLA Transfer Admission
Navigation Page

 

Competition for transfer openings has increased in recent years. Thus, strong academic preparation and performance are primary elements in the UCLA admission decisions. The average GPA of transfer applicants who are admitted to UCLA is 3.72, and most students who are admitted have completed most or all of the preparatory coursework for their majors.

Academic Criteria - Overview

  • Transfer Applicants must achieve Junior-level standing (60 semester/90 quarter transferable units completed) by the end of the spring term before you transfer.
  • GPA of 3.20 or higher earned in transferable courses.
  • Progress towards completion of major preparation requirements by spring prior to transfer.
  • There may be additional lower division requirements that students may complete--either at their current institutions or at UCLA. Should a major not have specific prerequisites, we expect students to demonstrate interest in academic study by completing coursework related to the major.
  • Completion of the UC English composition, mathematics, and additional subject requirements by spring prior to transfer:
  • Two courses in English composition/critical thinking and writing.
  • One transferable math course that has a prerequisite of intermediate algebra or higher.
  • Four transferable college courses in at least two of the following subject areas: arts and humanities, social and behavioral sciences, physical and biological sciences.
  • Completion of the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), UCLA general education requirements, or another UC campus's breadth requirements is highly recommended for applicants to the College of Letters and Science and the School of Arts and Architecture. See IGETC Considerations for important information.

    Applicants to the School of Theater, Film, and Television must complete one of the aforementioned general education paths.

    Applicants to the School of Nursing and the Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science are strongly encouraged to work towards the respective school's curriculum requirements.
