uc application problem

<p>Hi, I have a question for my uc application. I am a student in PCC. I think my total units will exceed 90 semester units (include non-uc transferable units). However, I only have 71 units before transfer. So which options I can choose in follow question.</p>

<p>How many college/university units do you plan to complete before you enroll at UC?</p>

<p>.60–89 semester/90–134 quarter units (junior transfer) </p>

<p>.90 semester/135 quarter units or more (senior transfer) </p>

<p>Thank you for replying.</p>

<p>They are talking about your transferable units.</p>

<p>So, they want your UC Transferable units including the spring 2012.</p>

<p>As long as all of your units are from a community college (ie PCC) and not a four year university, you will be applying as a junior. Please don't state that you're applying as a senior unless you have units from a 4 year.</p>

<p>i'm pretty sure UCs will limit you to 105 quarter units transferred. you cannot transfer as a senior.</p>

<p>Go as Junior transfer. I'm a PCC student also and I had the same issue in the beginning.</p>

<p>regardless of what you do, you will be a junior in standing after transfer. you still need 64 upper division units to graduate anyways.</p>

<p>Thank you everyone. Even though I totally have 110 units, but uc application just care my 71 units. So I am a junior transfer, right?</p>

<p>I mean 71 transferable units</p>

<p>i'm very confused. are you talking about quarter or semester units?</p>

<p>Oh...sorry about that. I mean I have 71 uc transferable semester units. However, my total semester units are 100 (include non-transferable units.) </p>

<p>How many college/university units do you plan to complete before you enroll at UC?</p>

<p>.60–89 semester/90–134 quarter units (junior transfer) </p>

<p>.90 semester/135 quarter units or more (senior transfer)</p>

<p>well again, they only let you take in 105 quarter. so....</p>

<p>You're always still a Junior transfer, since technically you have no upper divisions and stuff, or maybe just some. Just believe us, you're a Junior transfer. The college, if accepted, will just count 70 units (I believe) out of however many units you had but all articulated transferable classes will be accounted for. You're GPA is still counted as a whole, it's just that the unit will be capped at a 70 going towards your 120 (?) for acquiring a degree.</p>

<p>Since you have 71 UC-Transferable units then that will make you a ".60–89 semester/90–134 quarter units (junior transfer) ".</p>

<p>Note that once you transfer, you will need to take 2-years worth of upper-division classes for your major. So, as long as you complete 60 units then your set. But if you completed more than 60 then you just did extra work for the same results as a student who did 60 units.</p>

<p>What? I don't understand what you're saying. There are majors that require more than 60 units of lower division coursework. </p>

<p>This is untrue. Many high-unit majors will flat-out deny you if you only complete 60 units (e.g. Engineering and Sciences). Many engineering/science majors have 90+ units when they transfer. Typically, only 70 units of credit towards graduation are granted, but you still receive subject/course credit (i.e., clearing pre-requisites for upper division coursework).</p>

<p>For example, if I transferred with only 60 units, I would be stuck at a UC for 3 years, because 60 units is not enough to cover all of my lower division courses.</p>

<p>^^Oh, I see what you meant. So, the units vary by your majors.</p>
