  • Exam Credit

    Advanced Placement
    UCR grants credit for all Advanced Placement exams on which a student scores three or higher. Units awarded toward UC graduation may be granted for specific subjects and/or for general education/ breadth requirements, as determined by each campus. AP exams can also be used to meet the minimum transfer admission subject requirements in English, math and four other courses chosen from the humanities, behavioral/social sciences and biological/physical sciences.

    International Baccalaureate
    The IB organization awards either a diploma or a certificate for individual IB exams. Students who complete the IB diploma with a score of 30 or above will receive 30 quarter (20 semester) units toward their UC degree. Students who receive IB certificates with a score of five or higher on Higher Level exams will receive eight quarter (5.3 semester) units.

    A-Level Examinations
    UCR grants credit for the General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Levels (A-Levels), the Cambridge International A-Levels, the Singapore-Cambridge GCE A-Levels (H2) and the previously administered Hong Kong Advanced Level Examination (HKALE), in content-based subjects similar to courses offered at UC and in which grades of A*, A, B or C are awarded. UCR grants 12 quarter (eight semester) units of credit for academic courses only for GCE, Singapore-Cambridge and Hong Kong A-Level exams.

  • College Preparatory Program

    For country-specific admission requirements, visit international admissions requirements by country or educational system, or email an international admissions counselor at internationalinfo@ucr.edu.

  • Academic Achievement

    To meet minimum requirements to be considered for UCR selection, you must earn a minimum GPA of 3.4 on a 4.0 scale (equivalent to an 85 percent on a 100 percent scale). The assessment of a qualifying GPA is based on “a–g” courses (required high school/secondary classes) completed in years 10 and 11. If the high school/secondary school offers a different curriculum, your academic achievement will be based on that educational system’s grading scale.

  • Required Exams

    The ACT with Writing or the SAT with Essay must be taken no later than December of the final year of secondary school. The SAT subject tests are not required. They do, however, demonstrate subject mastery and may meet an “a-g” requirement or fulfill recommendations by the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE) and the College of Natural and Agricultural Sciences (CNAS). Both colleges recommend Math Level 2 and either Chemistry or Physics.

International Transfer

Along with the minimum admissions requirements that California Community College transfers must meet, transfers from international colleges must also follow these instructions that apply specifically to them. Prepare for admission to UCR with the International Transfer Admission Checklist. UCR's admissions selection process is the same for both international and U.S.-educated applicants.

Transfer applicants are registered at a college/university for a regular session after high school. Transfer applicants cannot disregard their college record and apply as a first-year student.

U.S. citizens or Permanent Residents, who have completed coursework outside the United States, should follow the international admissions requirements for the country in which the coursework was completed. If you are transferring from a four-year, out-of-state two-year, or UC school, please see special instructions that apply to you.

If you are transferring from a California Community College, your admission requirements are outlined below.

Requirements

  • Required Units & Minimum GPA
    • You must complete 60 semester (90 quarter) units of transferrable college credit.
    • Admission to UCR to selective, so strive to surpass the minimum.
    • Some major programs require a minimum GPA that is higher than that of basic admission.
    • No more than 14 semester (21 quarter) units may be Pass/Not Pass.
  • Required Community College Classes

    You need to complete the following seven-course pattern by the end of the spring term prior to fall enrollment at UCR (or the fall term prior to enrollment if you're applying for winter admission):

    • Two transferrable courses in English composition
    • One transferrable course in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning
    • Four transferred courses chosen from at least two of these subject areas: arts and humanities, social and behavioral sciences, or physical and biological sciences Each course must be transferable and worth at least 3 semester (4–5 quarter) units.

     

    Use ASSIST.org to see if your classes will transfer before taking them.

    Students transferring from California Community Colleges can use the UC Transfer Admission Planner (UC TAP) to track your coursework and monitor your progress. You can enter your coursework (completed and planned) from the beginning of your college career (or whenever you decide to transfer to UCR). You should still meet with counselors, as this tool does not replace in-person advising. The UC TAP also serves as your Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) application.

  • English Language Proficiency

    If English is not your native language, or the language of instruction at school, English proficiency must be demonstrated in one of these ways:

    • Achieve a score of 31 or higher on the new SAT Writing and Language Test.
    • Achieve a score of 3, 4 or 5 on the AP Exam in English Language and Composition or English Literature and Composition.
    • Achieve a score of 5, 6 or 7 on the International Baccalaureate (IB) Higher Level Examination in English (Language A).

  • Visa & U.S. Entry Requirements

How to Get into Your Major

  • For All Majors
    • In general, each major has prerequisite (major prep) coursework that you must take before transferring in order to get into your major.
    • Take the recommended lower-division/general education/breadth classes for your major. Students who transfer from California Community Colleges can take the recommended lower-division/general education/breadth classes for your major. Some programs recommend the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC), which is a series of courses that California Community College students can complete to satisfy first- and second-year general education requirements before transferring. Some programs want you to focus on prerequisites instead of IGETC. Use ASSIST.org to see what your major program recommends or contact a UCR admissions counselor for help.
    • Each major has a minimum GPA requirement. Some majors require a GPA higher than that required for basic admission. Programs are selective. Strive to surpass your program’s minimum GPA. Remember: All transferable coursework will be taken into account.
  • Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering Requirements

    Breadth Requirements
    You are strongly encouraged to focus on preparatory course work (mathematics, science and technical work) for your desired major rather than on IGETC completion. However, the Marlan and Rosemary Bourns College of Engineering (BCOE) does accept completion of IGETC as satisfying the majority of breadth requirements. Additional breadth coursework may be required after enrollment at BCOE.

    Prerequisites
    Strong technical preparation is essential for success in the admissions process and, subsequently, in all coursework at BCOE. If you intend to transfer to an engineering major, you are expected to complete the equivalent of UCR coursework required in the first two years of the programs and apply for transfer starting your junior year. Use ASSIST.org to see the prerequisites you must take for your intended major (and to make sure your classes will transfer).

    You are strongly encouraged to focus on completing transferable math and science classes.
