Transfer Requirements

At UC Berkeley, the world’s premier public university, you can excel beyond, exchange ideas and, ultimately, change the world.

  • You are a transfer student if you have completed coursework during a regular session at a college or university after high school (the summer session immediately following high school graduation does not count).
  • While the UC gives California community college applicants priority over other transfer applicants, we also accept applications from those applying from institutions outside of the California Community College system.
  • UC Berkeley only accepts applications for the Fall term. The UC Application is available in August the year prior to the Fall term you are applying for.
