Credit Limitations
 Two similar courses, each is transferable, but if a student takes
both, UC will award credit for only one course

course to limit

Language of Instruction

primary language of instruction (LOI)

in high school

Incomplete Grade
 The I grade is assigned when a student’s work is of passing quality but is
incomplete for good cause. UC will honor the sending institution’s policy for
replacing the I grade in determining whether to include it in the GPA
computation.
UC COUNSELOR CONFERENCE SEPTEMBER 2014
Former UC student
 Former UC students must be in good standing at their previous
UC campus
 Bad standing = overall or last term GPA < 2.0
 Students may use UC summer courses to offset GPA
deficit
 UC courses must be repeated at UC, but not necessarily
at original campus
UC COUNSELOR CONFERENCE SEPTEMBER 2014
Winter grades/pending repeats
 GPA for admission purposes is calculated through current fall term
 Winter grades are not included in the initial GPA calculation
 For selection, campuses may ask for/consider Winter grades, but…
 Students must submit the Transfer Academic Update (TAU) by
the priority deadline (usually end of January)
 Waiting for Winter grades before submitting TAU may
jeopardize an applicant’s review
