How your transfer application is reviewed

Each UC campus has a slightly different process for reviewing transfer applications and selecting successful candidates. UC Davis transfer applicants must typically have academic records that far exceed UC admission requirements. For many of our more rigorous majors, you must also complete selective major requirements beyond those required by the University of California.

Selection Criteria

The primary basis of our admission decision is your academic preparation and achievement. We will review your transferable GPA and courses—including those completed, in-progress and planned—as required by your major.

At a minimum, applicants must meet University of California admission requirements as well as UC Davis transfer admission requirements and selective major requirements. Students interested in a UC Davis Transfer Admission Guarantee may be required to meet a higher overall transfer GPA. For the best chance of admission, students are encouraged to work toward an even higher GPA, as some majors may be more competitive than others.

Our admission decision is also based on the available spaces unique to each college, division and/or major you select in your application.
