SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – California community college students will be guaranteed admission into the University of California if they meet certain course requirements.
University of California and the California Community Colleges agreed Wednesday that students who do well in courses that UC faculty helped develop will win admission into a UC campus.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports the agreement will apply to students who begin community college in fall 2019.
The courses will lead to an associate degree for transfer into UC. Applicants may not get into their first choice but will be admitted into one of the nine undergraduate UC campuses.
UC enrolled 20,000 transfer students this year – the most in its history. Most of them came from community colleges.
