Transfer Admission

UCLA enrolls more transfer students than any other elite university in the country, and with a range of transfer-specific programs, resources and events, we’re committed to your success.

Transfer students enter UCLA as juniors (third-year students), having taken enough courses at another institution. In Fall 2017, transfers came to UCLA from more than 100 different California community colleges. And in the degree year 2016–17, 36 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients had started UCLA as transfer students.

Our vibrant, active transfer community counts Jackie Robinson and George Takei among its many successful alumni.
