Transfer Students

The Berkeley campus is strongly committed to admitting transfer students, who typically make up about one-third of our fall class.

Transfer students do very well at Berkeley, graduating with similar grade point averages and at similar rates as students who started Cal as freshmen. Transfer admission is limited to students who have or will have completed a minimum of 60 UC-transferable semester units by the end of the spring term of the current semester. As a junior transfer applicant, you must indicate your intended major on the UC application, as your application for admission will be reviewed based on the completion of prerequisite courses for a particular academic program at Berkeley.
