New Dual Admission pilot program will help more students transfer to UC
The University of California is launching a pilot program next spring that could help thousands more California students transfer to a UC campus.
The UC Dual Admission pilot program creates a new transfer path for California high school students who are ineligible for admission because they haven’t met all of UC’s subject matter requirements.
“Rather than just getting a letter that says they don’t meet UC’s admission requirements, these promising students will be invited to enroll at a California Community College, knowing they have a guaranteed spot at a UC campus if they complete the transfer requirements,” said Han Mi Yoon-Wu, executive director of Undergraduate Admissions.
“It’s one of the ways that UC is putting out the welcome mat to as many California students as possible. Transfer is a great path to a life-changing UC education. We want these students to know we can help them achieve it.”
I love this idea – thank you Han-Mi and all the admissions team!
