student holding UC Merced pennantThere are nine University of California (UC) campuses to chose from to complete your undergraduate degree. That means nine geographic locations, tempos and personalities to consider.

The best information on the UC system can be found on the University of California website.

If you plan to apply to a UC, you should create a Transfer Admissions Planner (TAP). Students can enter their course work (completed and planned) from the very beginning of their college careers. The TAP helps students track their progress toward meeting UC’s minimum requirements, and allows UC staff to communicate important information to prospective transfer students.
