Transferring Credit

Check with your college or department before enrolling at another university in order to ensure that courses you take will be applied toward your degree.

How Do I...?

Find Out if My Transfer Credit Meets Berkeley Requirements

Visit assist.org, the online student-transfer information system that shows how course credits earned at California Community Colleges can be applied to UC Berkeley requirements. If you are transferring credit from a four-year institution or community college outside of California, your course work will need to be evaluated.

You can learn more about admissions requirements for undergraduate transfer students on the Office of Undergraduate Admissions website. If you are a graduate student, you can learn more about transferring credit through the Graduate Divsion

Submit Transfer Credit from Another Institution

If you have completed course work elsewhere and would like to transfer it to your UC Berkeley transcript,  you can drop the transcript off at Cal Student Central in 120 Sproul Hall or mail your official transcript:

Newly Admitted Students mail to:
UC Berkeley Undergraduate Admissions Transcripts
16 Sproul Hall, MC 0608
Berkeley, CA 94720-0608

Continuing Students mail to:
UC Berkeley Undergraduate Transcripts

California Community Colleges
Find out if your college sends electronic transcripts via eTranscript California. Participating California community colleges will know how and where to send, so your college will not need an email address. If your college does not use eTranscript, they may use another secure third-party vendor to send transcripts to our Business Operations Office: busops@berkeley.edu.

 

Know When My Transfer Credit Has Arrived

It may take up to six weeks for the evaluation of transfer credit to be completed and posted to the Berkeley transcript.

If you have questions about the evaluation of the transfer work, contact Cal Student Central.

Transfer Units When Completing a Degree at Another University or UC Extension

If you are on the degree list and are completing degree requirements at another university or through University Extension, check with your college evaluation unit to have transfer work evaluated.
