Transferring to UCLA

Did you know that last year alone 3,647 students transferred to UCLA?

Here are some of the academic requirements for transfer applicants:

  • Junior-level standing (60 semester or 90 quarter transferable units completed) by the end of the spring term before you transfer
  • Most transfer students have an average GPA of 3.5. However, in our experience, international students should aim to have a GPA of 4.
  • Completion of major preparation requirements by the end of spring prior to transfer
  • Completion of the following course requirements by spring prior to transfer:
    • Two transferable courses in English composition, critical thinking, and writing
    • One transferable math course with 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 behavioural sciences, physical and biological sciences

UCLA gives preference to students in community colleges in California, but that doesn’t mean that out-of-state or international students don’t have a chance. UCLA also considers personal factors such as employment while attending school, involvement in campus organizations and community service, family responsibilities, significant improvement in academic performance over time, and other opportunities or challenges that may have shaped your educational experience.

UCLA is a competitive school, but with hard work and dedication, anything is possible! If you’re interested in transferring to UCLA, contact us
