Transfer to UC.

This student informational booklet reports that more than 11,000 students transferred from California community colleges to the University of California (UC) in 2000. The publication also answers frequently asked questions. There are three ways to become eligible to attend UC: (1) meet the requirements upon graduating from high school; (2) make up missing requirements by taking transfer-eligible classes in community college; or (3) take 60 transferable units in a community college if you are unable to meet eligibility in the other two ways. Completing major preparation coursework and general education requirements at a community college can make the student a more competitive applicant and will help the student graduate sooner after transfer. Nearly two-thirds of community college students complete a bachelor's degree within 3 years of entering a UC campus, and more than 75% complete a degree 4 years after entering. These graduation rates are comparable to those for students who entered as freshmen. This document offers a brief description of financial aid options for UC students, makes suggestions for choosing a campus, and includes an Internet address for online applications. It also contains a listing of campus tours and/or admissions advising hours for each campus, as well as a listing of pertinent addresses, phone numbers, and Web sites. (Author/NB)
