You’re more than your GPA
After looking at the statistics above, students sometimes wonder: Do I have to achieve that high a GPA to get into UC Davis? Or, if I meet or exceed the GPA shown, is that a guarantee that I’ll be admitted? In both cases, not necessarily. UC Davis considers 13 holistic review factors to review your achievements and personal qualities in light of the opportunities available to you and your demonstrated capacity to contribute to the intellectual life at the University of California, Davis
Transfer admission statistics
Transfer GPA details
You must earn at least a 2.40 GPA in your UC-transferable classes to meet UC requirements; California non-residents must earn at least a 2.80 GPA. However, UC Davis requires a minimum 2.80 GPA to be selected for admission, and many of our most popular programs may require a higher GPA. Strive to achieve your highest possible GPA in order to be most competitive.
