Transfer Course Credit Petitions

Purpose: To apply transfer courses to UCLA requirements:

  • American History and Institutions
  • L&S Diversity
  • Writing II
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • School / College Foreign Language
  • Foundations of Arts & Humanities, Society & Culture, and Scientific Inquiry

Petitions can be submitted for classes previously taken or for classes you plan to take in the future.

Attach: These requests require a digital copy of the course syllabus from the term the course is taken.  If the syllabus is not available, the committee may also accept a syllabus for the course from another term, the course description taken from the General Catalog, the course reading list, and/or the course learning objectives.  Please be sure you have electronic copies (e.g. PDF or Word documents) to submit with your request.

Notes:

  • You will need to indicate exactly which requirement you wish to satisfy. For more information about the different GE areas, please see https://registrar.ucla.edu/academics/ge-requirement  for descriptions of each area.
  • This form is to petition courses taken elsewhere for GE credit. You cannot petition UCLA courses that are not on the already approved list for the College of Letters & Sciences, and such petitions will be automatically denied.
  • This petition is for the American History and Institutions, L&S Diversity, Writing II, Quantitative Reasoning, School/College Foreign Language, and Foundations of Arts & Humanities, Society & Culture, and Scientific Inquiry requirements only, and cannot be used for other requirements.
  • Students wishing to satisfy major or minor requirements with transfer course credit should consult their respective departments.  Students wishing to satisfy the Entry Level Writing or Writing I requirements should consult the Writing Programs Office.
  • Students who are not in the College of Letters & Science should consult with their own School for procedures on petitioning requirements.
  • Documents should be submitted in PDF or Word format. We may not be able to evaluate requests if we are unable to view certain formats (e.g., Pages).

To submit your petition, please select the appropriate option below based on your advising/counseling unit and the requirement you wish to satisfy. Please read your options carefully as they are not the same for each unit. (You may check your Degree Audit to see your advising/counseling unit. If you select the wrong unit, your petition will not be processed.)
