U of California's New Transfer 'Road Map'

July 8, 2015

The University of California System this week announced a "new academic road map" for community college students in the state who seek to transfer to UC campuses. The transfer pathways include a single set of courses that UC said will prepare transfer students for 10 of the most popular majors at the university's nine campuses. The university said it plans to create pathways for another 11 majors later this year.

Roughly 30 percent of UC's undergraduates are transfer students, with 90 percent of those students coming from a California community college. The university said the transfer pathways will help UC meet its goal of enrolling at least one new transfer student for every two new freshmen. UC and Jerry Brown, California's governor, established the 2:1 ratio as part of a budget deal they struck earlier this year.
