a. University of California

b. California State University

c. Other Private Schools (USC, NYU, etc.)

For community college students, the UC transfer rate is higher than other college transfers. Since California community colleges and UCs have agreements, students who satisfy their GPA and course requirements are eligible for TAG and transfer admission. UC provides transfer offers to 92% of California community college students.

How can I determine if my course units/credits are transferable? provides comprehensive transfer course information for CCs to UC.

What’s the GPA requirement for top private school transfers, such as USC or NYU? Do I need extracurriculars or internship experiences?


Students need to maintain a GPA from 3.9 to 4.0 to transfer to top private schools. In addition, a strong recommendation letter from professors, outstanding extracurriculars, research paper publication, and art portfolios will increase the chance of getting accepted.

If I have some bad records like a ‘D’ or ‘Fail/No Pass’ on my transcripts, what should I do to satisfy the requirements?


Students can consult with their school counselor and apply for Academic Renewal, or they can retake those specific courses in order to make up for bad grades.

Can I change my major once I get admitted? What is my chance of success?


The chance of changing your major under the same school is higher than changing majors from other schools. For more information about this process, students need to consult with their academic advisor as some majors require students to complete certain lower-division major courses first.

Successful Stories  




Zhu was an undergraduate student from Chapman University, and his chance of transferring to a UC was only 8% because UC provides 92% of transfer offers to California community college students. 


Since Zhu had a 3.93 GPA, which is more advantageous, we decided to apply for UC transfer and major in Economics directly from Chapman University. Our teachers utilized his academic advantages, highlighting his strengths in his essays. 


Finally, the student was successfully accepted to UC Berkeley, UCLA, and USC.




As a international student, Pt, studied at OCC and earned a 3.8 GPA. After graduating from high school, he returned to Taiwan to work for 10 years, hoping to apply to ‘Top 10 Schools.’ After getting to know his unique experiences, our team converted his academic gap disadvantage into an advantage. 


First off, we noticed that Pt managed his family’s business in Taiwan for 10 years and had a very rich experience. Second, he had two years of military service, which also helped him improve his leadership skills. Third, although he did not take university level courses, he was responsible for taking care of his family after work and had effective time-management skills. 


Due to these advantages, Pt was successfully admitted to Columbia University, which has a historically low acceptance rate.




Student Zhou is an international student who used to study at San Francisco State University. 


The first time he applied for UC was in Fall 2019. Due to personal reasons, he dropped all of his courses during the last semester, which resulted in a failed transfer application. In Fall 2020, he decided to apply for UC a second time. Through strategic course planning, he successfully completed the missing courses from different community colleges and achieved excellent results. 


He finally met all of the transfer requirements and was accepted to UC Irvine.
