Please note that it is highly recommended that students complete all the basic admissions requirements by the end of spring for fall admissions, even if the university is allowing a student to complete basic requirements "prior to enrollment." Also, the following UC campuses admit transfer students only in the Fall: UC Berkeley, UCLA, & UC San Diego.

In addition, many of the campuses screen for completion of major preparation as part of the admission process. The university will accept a maximum of 70 UC transferable semester units from the community college.

While eligible students can be admitted to any campus of UC, Moorpark College has a Transfer Admissions Guarantee program that has special transfer admission agreements with several UC Campuses. For more information, visit the TAG website.
