More than half of UC transfer students pay no tuition: 8 little-known facts about paying for UC
There are lots of ways to get to UC, and transferring is an excellent path for many students. In fact, nearly a third of UC undergrads start at a California community college. For some, the cost savings of living and working near home for part of their college career are decisive.
