General Information for Junior Transfers
Students transferring into the program from outside of UC Santa Cruz can do so for their Junior year.
In preparation for transfer to AGPM, students are required to demonstrate proficiency in programming, visual art, and game design.
The requirements for a student applying to join AGPM as a junior transfer are:
- A minimum grade of C (2.0) in courses articulated to UCSC’s Computer Science 12B/M, Introduction to Data Structures/Lab
- A minimum grade of C (2.0) in two studio art or game design courses articulated to courses in the following list:
(Please use assist.org to view articulation agreements between your community college and UC Santa Cruz to make sure that you get into the right classes.)
If your local community college does not offer an equivalent a CMPS 12B/M: Intro to Data Structures, you can use our list of Online Programming Courses to find an online course from a different community college. Furthermore, you could instead attend UCSC in the summer (before you apply to the program) and take CMPS 12B/M as a visiting student.
While not a requirement, we also recommend that you complete the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) to satisfy freshman/sophomore level general education requirements before transferring.
