- ABOUT US
UC Davis does not grant admission for a number of reasons. Learn why your application was not accepted and explore your other college options.
The extraordinary size and strength of the UC Davis applicant pool means that many qualified candidates are denied admission. For fall quarter 2013, UC Davis received about 13,800 transfer applications competing for approximately 3,250 available spaces.
Meeting the minimum UC transfer admission requirements does not guarantee admission to UC Davis. Transfer applicants who were admitted had to meet UC Davis academic selection criteria, which exceeds minimum UC admission requirements. An array of criteria was used in selecting the transfer class. Foremost was the applicant's academic performance and preparation, followed by personal characteristics and experiences. Additionally, admission was dependent upon the applicant's selected college and major.
UC Davis only accepts applications for fall quarter admission.
Appeals are rarely granted. Consideration for appeals is based on new and compelling information, extenuating circumstances and your overall academic record. As part of your appeal, you must include a statement describing your special circumstances, as well as self-reported academic records, letters of recommendation (suggested) and any other documentation.
