UC to CC back to UC

<p>Thanks to Grimes99, I have come to understand that if you completed less than 30 units at your old UC, then you have CCC priority when you transfer back. </p>

<p>If you are treated differently in transfer priority, do you also have different treatment when it comes to GPA? ie. once I transfer to (cross my fingers) UCLA will I start with my 2.0 from UCSC?</p>

<p>I believe once you transfer to a UC, your GPA is wiped clean. Sooo, no?</p>

<p><em>Edit</em>- Forgot to add. I'm interested in transferring up to UCSC this fall. Any particular reason your transferring? Pros/Cons of the campus, if you don't mind sharing? :)</p>

<p>From what I've read your GPA is wiped, UNLESS it's from a UC. So if you have a 2.0 at UCSC and then transfer to UCLA, you will retain the 2.0. I'm not 100% sure if that's still the case if you go to a CCC, but it seems probable. </p>

<p>Also, kingdomsroa48, I am currently at UCSC. I'm a second year lit major, and I'm also in the process of transferring out. It's a decent school, but the lit program isn't too great. If you're a math or science related major you will most likely love it, as those programs are top notch. The campus is, in my opinion, alright. Too spread out and hilly for me, but I'm not a forest person. Great ocean views though :)</p>

<p>Your UC GPA follows you to whichever UC you transfer to...if you had a 2.0 at UCSC you're gonna start with a 2.0 at UCLA :/ This is the biggest reason I'm not transferring back to a UC......</p>

Ya, that's what I thought too but I haven't seen any legitimate information on it, just speculation, so I was being hopeful - starting out with my UCSC gpa at UCLA does seem to make the most sense though.</p>

<p>I also considered the non-UC option because of GPA but I figured that the best school I can get into is probably a UC. I think grad school and employment will look favorably at the determination and grade trend, especially if you show them that the last four years in college you had a near perfect GPA. (which is what I hope to do!)</p>
