TRANSFERRING CREDIT

If you have taken coursework elsewhere and would like to apply those courses to your UCLA degree requirements, the courses must be transferrable, and you must have official transcripts sent to Undergraduate Admission  .

If you wish to apply your coursework to preparation, major or minor requirements, please consult your major or minor department.

Taking Coursework as a New Student

Prior to your start at UCLA and articulation of your transfer coursework, please do not complete any coursework that is similar in content to coursework for which you have already earned credit.

Taking College Requirements Outside of UCLA

Articulation Agreements

If you would like coursework to apply towards College or University requirements (e.g., General Education, foreign language, Writing I or II, etc.) you may submit a Transfer Course Credit Petition to the College once the coursework has been posted to your DAR. You may submit an advisory petition if you would like to know whether a course would be approved before taking it; approvals are provisional and contingent upon courses being deemed transferrable by Admissions.

If you plan to fulfill College or University requirements at a community college in the area, please check here for agreements UCLA has with local community colleges.

If you would like to transfer credit to satisfy any major requirements including prep coursework, please see your major department.

UCLA Extension

Students can take classes through UCLA Extension to complete requirements. However certain considerations must be taken into account:

EAP

If you wish to apply your EAP coursework to preparation, major or minor requirements, please consult your major or minor department.

If you would like coursework taken abroad toward College or University requirements (e.g., General Education, foreign language, Writing I or II, etc.) you may submit a Transfer Course Credit Petition to the College once the coursework has been posted to your DPR. You may submit an advisory petition if you would like to know whether a course would be approved before taking it; approvals are provisional and contingent upon courses being deemed transferrable by Admissions. No more than 5 blue petitions will be reviewed by the College in advance of your EAP trip.
