UCSD Fall 2021 Transfer Thread


CCC Transfer

Major - Computer Science
GPA - 3.85 after Fall 2020 (updated thru TAU)
IGETC - completed
Prereqs - will be done after Winter 2020

I’m really anxious seeing how competitive people are. I also applied to UCLA, UCI, and UCSB for comp. sci

Hi everyone! I applied to UCSD from out-of-state community college (I’m also an international student)

Major: Political Science
graduated from community college in upstate NY Fall 2020
GPA: 3.98 (I took a lot of honors classes too)
Prereqs: completed
I’d say my PIQ’s were very strong.

EC’s: Vice President in Student Government, Senior Student Ambassador, service-learning volunteering, internship at a law firm during gap year after high school, student representative for the college, and also a member of the honor society

I’m nervous tho bc I’m an out-of-state applicant and I know UC’s accept 90% California students… what do you think are my chances?

I think you have a chance, but since you are OOS it’s hard to say. If you were in a California community college I would say you would have definitely gotten admitted. I guess we just have to wait until april 23rd to find out.

Hey everyone, I decided to create this topic because I haven’t seen one made for UC San Diego yet. As decisions roll out in a few weeks for transfers it’ll be nice to see how everyone does, compare stats, or ask any questions about UC San Diego.

Here are my stats to start off:

Major: Mathematics - Probability and Statistics
GPA: 3.9
Pre-Reqs: All done
Degrees: Will have some associate degrees in Computer Science, Mathematics, and 2 others after completing this spring semester.
Work: Part-time at a Car Wash, non-major related

Applied: UCSD, UCSB, UCD, UCI, UCLA, UCB, Cal Poly Pomona, Cal Poly Slo, SDSU
Accepted: Cal Poly Pomona
Waitlists: SDSU, Cal Poly Slo

Good luck to everyone and I hope this thread helps.

Forum Champion Note: Per agreement with the UC Transfer Forum Champion, all Transfer discussions will be posted in the UC Transfer Forum and not in individual UC forum. Moving discussion.

Hi! I think there is already a thread for this :blush:


Thank you, don’t know why I couldn’t find this before


No problem!

Hey! Is there any way that we can update/provide our winter quarter grades to the UCs?

TAU is closed, but you can write their admissions office.

  • I think my gpa for my major is too low, (for econ gpa range is 3.83-4.0) it is tooooo competitive. Since I am a one-year transfer most of my transfer Units come from the APs I took in HS (about 32 units), and due to the short time period I have until transfer, I really don’t have time to take many class to build up my GPA. In fact, I only have one B on my transcript but the total classes I took are not enough to sort of average it out ughhhh.

  • I didn’t get TAP certified because I literally don’t have enough time to complete the honor’s program.

  • Also due to the pandemic I don’t really have any cc college experience to talk about…

  • I head that we have double the amount of transfer applicants this year compared to last year so… fingers crossed

Schools Applied: UCLA,UCB,UCSD,UCI(TAG)

BEST OF LUCK for everyone!!! Last year was really a mess and we tried our best to survive, now we are almost there, we deserve what we put in! No matter what the outcome is, I am so proud of ALL OF YOU!!

you’re the type of people that give me trust issues in not being good enough…damn that is amazing GOOD FOR YOU! Wish you the best you deserve it
