UCLA Transfer Admission
Competition for transfer openings has increased in recent years. Thus, strong academic
preparation and performance are primary elements in the UCLA admission decisions.
The average GPA of transfer applicants who are admitted to UCLA is 3.72, and most
students who are admitted have completed most or all of the preparatory coursework
for their majors.
Academic Criteria - Overview
- Transfer Applicants must achieve Junior-level standing (60 semester/90 quarter transferable
units completed) by the end of the spring term before transfer.
- GPA of 3.20 or higher earned in transferable courses.
- Progress towards completion of major preparation requirements by spring prior to transfer.
- There may be additional lower division requirements that students may complete--either
at their current institutions or at UCLA. Should a major not have specific prerequisites,
students are expected to demonstrate interest in academic study by completing coursework
in the major.

by spring prior to transfer:
- Two courses in English composition/critical thinking and writing.
