University of California
The California Community Colleges and the University of California (UC) systems signed a joint agreement to increase the number of community college students who transfer to UC and earn their bachelor’s degree. Beginning fall 2019, the agreement guarantees admission to one of the University of California’s nine undergraduate campuses for all qualifying California community college students who complete one of the UC pathways and achieve the requisite GPA. If a community college student has an Associate Degree for Transfer that meets or exceeds the major requirements in a UC transfer pathway for the same major, it will be accepted in place of a transfer admission guarantee.
