UC Davis Transfer Acceptance Rate by Major

Hey y'all, I'm a community college student looking to transfer to UC Davis. I've heard acceptance rates can vary by major, so I'm curious if anyone knows where I can find data on acceptance rates based on major? Thanks in advance!

Hello! You're right that acceptance rates can differ by major when applying for transfer. While UC Davis itself might not provide detailed information on acceptance rates based on specific majors, you can still get a sense of your chances based on other resources and factors.

One resource that is available is the University of California's Infocenter (https://www.universityofcalifornia.edu/infocenter/transfers-major). This website offers data on transfer acceptance rates by major across all the UC campuses, including UC Davis. Keep in mind that the data provided is from past years, so while it may not be strictly up-to-date, it can still offer you valuable insight.

In addition, consider examining the UC Transfer Admission Planner (UC TAP; https://uctap.universityofcalifornia.edu). This is an online tool designed to help prospective transfer students track their coursework, progress, and plan which UC schools they'd like to apply to. It also provides information about major-specific requirements and helpful guidance throughout the transfer application process.

Apart from these resources, it's important to consider the strength of your application holistically. UC Davis, like many institutions, values applicants who demonstrate strong academic performance, involvement in extracurricular activities, and a clear passion for their intended major. Make sure to highlight your strengths in your personal statement, and showcase how your community college experience has prepared you for success at UC Davis. Good luck with your transfer application!
