Transfer Students and Transferring Credit

Transfer Triton Day

UC San Diego hosts Transfer Triton Day in early-mid May every year as a way for incoming and prospective transfer students to explore campus, become familiar with support services, and speak with their academic department and College. 

The Department of Political Science partakes in tabling and a presentation at Transfer Triton Day. Our most recent presentation can be found here: 2019 - Transfer Triton Day PPT

Transfering Credit

Transfer students may have courses that are deemed transferable from another UC campus, four-year or two-year institution, or California Community College. 

How to Receive Credit

Make sure you have your transcript sent to UCSD Admissions in order that the course can be posted to your transcript. Always check with an academic advisor at your college for any issues related to residency.

A maximum of six courses may be transferred toward the political science major. Transfer courses include: all lower division courses from community college(s); AP exam(s); study abroad; four year university courses including any UC; and all concurrent enrollment courses taken through extension at any UC.

ALL COURSES MUST BE TAKEN FOR A LETTER GRADE AND A C- OR BETTER MUST BE EARNED
