Too many credits >>> can't apply to UC transfer??? (unit cap??)
I attended a out-of-state private college for a year
& I am planning to attend California community college and then transfer to UC.
Because that private college is an art school and credits that I have are mostly about art-related courses, I really need to earn all the IGETC & prereqs credits IN ccc. (The major that I want to pursue in UC is not an art-related major)
However, what I am worried about is what if I have too many credits(exceed the maximum credits for transferring) from private college + ccc.
I looked up the course catalogs in UCs, and found out a lot of UCs have comparable courses. (so I guess most of the credits from private college will be UC transferable?)
I asked about this to UC admission, but the answer was kinda ambiguous… so I’m still confused :(
I know that students who ONLY have credits from ccc do not have to worry about this unit cap thing, but I attended out-of-state college for a year so I have to be aware of that unit cap/unit ceiling thing.
Ok so my question is:
Let’s say I have 50 transferable credits from private college and have earned 90 transferable credits (IGETC+prereqs, etc…). Will I be okay to apply as (junior)transfer applicant? (I will transfer from CCC)
