UC Campus Policies and Procedures for Evaluating Transfer Applicants— Should students complete IGETC or
campus GE? Refer to the matrix for campus specific details.
Importance of Major Preparation:
► Selection is becoming more dependent upon preparation for all majors.
► Prerequisite coursework is generally a higher priority than campus GE or IGETC.
► Better prepares students for upper-division work in the major.
► For most majors, prerequisite courses must be completed by end of spring term prior to fall
enrollment at UC
Advice Should Always Be:

Use articulation agreements.
Get prepared for your major at the UC campus of your choice.
Complete all coursework by spring.
Deadlines are strictly enforced—Read and meet deadlines.
All correspondence is via email—Use an email address you are going to check, and check often!

If you aren't sure which UC campus you wish to attend — or just want to prepare for as many campuses as
possible — it's important to take the right steps now to enhance your chances of being accepted later. That
means understanding what requirements you have to fulfill to transfer into a major at a UC campus.
