UC Merced Freshman Spring 2020 Applicant

Hey guys I was wondering if attending 1 semester of cc before going to UC Merced will disqualify me as a freshmen? I was admitted as a freshmen applicant for spring 2020, but am currently taking some CC classes right now for Fall 2019.

Yes, taking any college courses during regular session after HS graduation will make you a transfer. Contact UCM admissions to confirm.

From UCM’s website:

Did you indicate on your Spring application that you would be taking Fall courses at your CC?
