Non-Residents and the UC
It’s stressful enough applying to the University of California as a California resident and/or a California community college (CCC) student. It’s that much more stressful when you don’t quite fit.
As an international student hoping to transfer to one of the UCs, you would naturally have questions, even if you are at a CCC; writing issues may be a concern, or maybe the U.S. educational process is not what you’re used to.
Out of State
If you’re an out of state college applicant (OOS), you probably have legitimate concerns about UC major and general education requirements, and whether your courses transfer.
Cal State University
Likewise, even CSU students can experience confusion with coursework and general requirements.
CA COLLEGE TRANSFER works extensively with non-CCC students and those with language concerns, helping them figure out the system and do whatever is in their best interest to complete a successful transfer. Our work includes evaluation of non-CCC courses and whether they will transfer. (Note, this is always an estimate because in the end, only the UC can determine course transferability. However, we follow the best practices rules supplied by the UC, as well as UC sites that note OOS course transferability.)

Lindy took it upon herself to advocate on my behalf and got me Academic Renewal after the community college said I didn't qualify. She said the rule was not being interpreted correctly and she was right.
Just two emails from Lindy explained more to me about what I needed than I got at my community college, and corrected a serious issue that might have prevented me from transferring. I got in…read more→
While Lindy and I only exchanged a few emails regarding Berkeley, I found that she was immediately responsive, very informative, and clearly knowledgeable about UC admissions.
Thank you so much for all your help with my major redirection and essays. Truly, this wouldn't be my life if it wasn't for you.
