We know that there are many outstanding, high achieving undergraduate students at UC who are not admitted to University Honors as incoming freshmen. We encourage interested students to apply through our transition process.
The transition process is very competitive and we are limited in the number of students that we can accept. As a result, there are also many outstanding, high achieving students that we are not able to admit through this process due to the number of applications received. In the 2015-16 process, we had 172 applications with 102 students admitted (a 59% acceptance rate). We expect the same number of applications (if not more) in the 2016-17 process.
Applicants must have a cumulative university GPA of 3.2 or above and be an undergraduate student enrolled full-time on main campus in order to be considered for admission to University Honors.
