General Information for Junior Transfers

Students transferring into the program from outside of UC Santa Cruz can do so for their Junior year.

Students applying for the Fall 2019 term are advised to complete as many of the following courses with a 2.0 GPA for their intended major prior to enrolling at UCSC to graduate in a timely manner. Screening for completion of specific major preparation courses prior to transfer will begin for Fall 2020.

1. Minimum grade of C (2.0) in courses articulated to UCSC’s Computer Science 12B/M, Introduction to Data Structures/Lab

2. Minimum grade of C (2.0) in two courses articulated to courses in the following list:

(Please use 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. 

Junior-level transfer students are strongly encouraged to IGETC prior to enrolling at UCSC to graduate in a timely manner.
