Campus Selection vs. UC Admission Requirements
The University of California, Davis is a highly selective public research university with a strong reputation around the world. To prepare for admission and the academic rigor necessary to be successful at our campus, make sure you meet or exceed the UC admission requirements. Simply meeting these requirements does not guarantee admission to UC Davis—applicants who are admitted typically exceed them by a considerable margin. The selection criteria that UC Davis considers as part of its comprehensive review process for each UC applicant are available at http://admissions.ucdavis.edu/admission/freshmen/fr_selection_process.cfm.
Transfer Credit for College Courses
