Students applying for transfer admission to selective majors must meet additional course and GPA requirements. All courses must be taken for a letter grade with no grade less than C. All major preparatory course requirements must be completed by the end of spring term before fall enrollment.

Some majors in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences have additional transfer requirements:

Students applying to the Landscape Architecture major should apply to Pre-Landscape Architecture.

Students are expected to take courses comparable to the UC Davis course requirements as long as they are offered at the California Community College (CCC) they attend. When the ASSIST website indicates “no comparable course” or “not articulated,” the selective major course requirement will be waived for UC Davis admission/TAG, but must be completed after enrolling at UC Davis. You can find CCC courses that are comparable to UC Davis courses using the ASSIST website.

TIP: Learn more about Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) credit and how the ASSIST website can help you.

To be well prepared, it is strongly recommended that students complete all lower-division coursework requirements for their major, as shown on the ASSIST website.
