Lower-division students are freshmen and sophomores; upper-division students are junior- and senior-level students.

Approximately 90 percent of transfer students to UC come from the CCCs. Transfer applicants from the CCCs are given priority in admission over transfer applicants from other institutions.

Since 1995, new CCC upper-division transfer fall enrollment has grown 62 percent.

Transfer students make up approximately 30 percent of incoming students annually. The tables shown here display fall admits only; additional transfer students matriculate in winter and spring terms.
