In many cases, UBridge students have their heart set on one particular institution, be it a guaranteed admissions school such as UC Irvine or a priority admissions school like UCLA and Berkeley. For those students looking to increase their admissions chances and settle in to their preferred transfer school’s geographic area right away, we have created three campus-specific preparation programs in the immediate vicinity of UCI, UCLA, and UC Berkeley. Each pathway program is located close to the transfer target university and the host campus has either the highest admissions percentage or number of students admitted to that specific school.
Students study for two years and then apply to transfer with third-year status, fully prepared to succeed in a challenging academic environment.
