Online Resources to Help Transfer to UCs/Cal States

This site helps show you exactly what credits you need to transfer from one California Public University to the other. All you have to do is plug in what college you are currently enrolled in, the institution you are looking to transfer to, and the academic year and it will show

you exactly what courses transfer to the exact classes at the college you are looking at. In this page I selected that I was going to Pasadena City College and that I was looking to transfer to UCLA. It will then bring up a page for you to select your major. After you will select your major, it will bring up the transfer agreements with where you can view them in you browser or download them as a PDF file. I will leave the link for this particular agreement for you guys if you want an example or are a math major looking at UCLA like me.

The UC Transfer Admission Planner is a great tool for applying to UCs. If you are applying for UC Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG), this the site that you will apply on. This site will have you plug in your college classes and test scores for TAG. Additionally, after finishing it will also allow you to carry the information from your TAG application to the normal transfer application saving you some time. It is a good resource to utilize even after finishing you TAG application.


The IGETC stands for Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum and will represent the freshman and sophomore year general education requirements transfer students can complete at their school. Every California community college has their own version of the IGETC as the general education classes vary at each community college. It might look like a lot but it is really not that much after breaking it down. I recommend taking 1 or 2 courses during the summer to help speed up the process if you have the time. This is just one of the many resources offered by the University of California website which I will be covering in a future blog post so stay tuned!

Using these resources effectively and finding what works for you will ensure a smoother transfer. There are many others out there that I am sure I have missed and if you guys think there is one I should highlight feel free to comment on this post or email me.
