prospective student reading through paperwork Some majors and one pre-major in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences have additional transfer requirements:

Required courses that are offered at your current campus will need to be completed by the close of spring term prior to fall enrollment at UC Davis. If required courses will not be offered at your college, you must complete them after enrolling at UC Davis. You can find California community college courses that are comparable to UC Davis courses using ASSIST.

UC Davis Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) requirements for selective majors are shown alongside preparatory coursework requirements.


Preparation for Specific Majors

You must earn an overall transfer GPA of 2.80 or higher to be a competitive candidate for admission to any selective majors in the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Courses must be taken for a letter grade, with no grade less than C (Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) Higher Level examinations may satisfy UC Davis course equivalents.).

To qualify for a fall 2019 Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) in these majors, you must meet the following additional requirements:
  • Achieve a minimum overall GPA of 3.20 from the time your TAG is submitted, up to the time of enrollment.
  • Achieve the minimum required GPAs in any courses that have been completed at the time the TAG application is submitted.
  • Complete UC transfer requirements in English composition (2 courses) and mathematics (1 course) by the end of fall term 2018.

Biotechnology

Candidates must complete coursework comparable to the following UC Davis courses with a GPA of at least 2.50 for each series. Additionally, candidates must have already achieved required GPAs in any of these courses that have been completed at the time the transfer academic update is submitted:

  • Mathematics 16A/B or 17A/B or 21A/B
  • Chemistry 2A/B/C
  • Biological Sciences 2A or 2B or 2C (entire series completion highly recommended)

A minimum of one course comparable to a UC Davis Biological Sciences 2 course series must be completed with a B grade or higher for admission. If multiple courses are required to satisfy one UC Davis Biological Sciences 2 course, all courses must be completed and the GPA for those courses must be 3.00 or higher. If coursework comparable to two UC Davis Biological Sciences 2 courses or the entire Biological Sciences 2 series is completed, a group GPA of 2.50 or higher is required. We strongly encourage students to complete the entire Biological Sciences 2A/B/C series before matriculating to UC Davis, as it is a prerequisite for many upper division courses.

It is also strongly recommended that students complete courses comparable to the following UC Davis courses. Completion of these courses will help a student move more efficiently toward graduation. Courses should be taken for a letter grade, with no grade less than C:

  • Organic Chemistry 8A/B or 118A/B/C*

*We strongly encourage students to complete the entire Organic Chemistry 8A/B or 118A/B/C series before matriculating to UC Davis, as the Organic Chemistry 8A/B or 118A/B/C series is a prerequisite for many upper-division courses. For the best transition and reduced time to degree, students should consider completing all lower-division preparatory coursework shown on assist.org.

 

Landscape Architecture, Pre-

Students who wish to major in landscape architecture must apply to the "Landscape Architecture, Pre-" category. Admission to UC Davis in pre-landscape architecture does not guarantee admission to the landscape architecture major.

After students have enrolled at UC Davis, they will be required to submit a separate major portfolio application to the department in February to be considered for placement in the upper division Landscape Architecture major. Contact the Landscape Architecture Advising Office at 530-754-8628 or visit humanecology.ucdavis.edu/lda for details about the portfolio application.

 

Viticulture and Enology

  • General Chemistry 2A/B/C
  • Organic Chemistry 8A
  • Mathematics 16A
  • Physics 1A/B or 7A
  • Biological Sciences 2A

It is strongly recommended that students complete courses comparable to the following UC Davis courses; if taken, the student must have a GPA of at least 3.00 for the entire group of courses listed above and below. Courses must be taken for a letter grade, with no grade less than C:

  • Organic Chemistry 8B
  • Mathematics 16B
  • Plant Sciences 2
