University Bridge is a 2+2 transfer program in partnership with five of the nation’s premier two-year colleges: PVCC in Charlottesville, Virginia; College of San Mateo in San Mateo, California; College of Marin in Kentfield, California; Santa Monica College in Santa Monica, California; and Irvine Valley College in Irvine, California. Students study up to 36 credits per year at our host campuses and receive complete social and academic support from their personal UBridge advisor.
After two years, or gaining a minimum of 60 credits, students transfer with third-year status to one of more than 180 four-year universities. Students are eligible to transfer based on the GPA they earn while enrolled in the University Bridge program. These Transfer Admissions Guarantees are state-level agreements between our host campuses and participating universities, many of which are elite U.S. institutions. Graduates of our program have gone on to study at many selective universities across the country.
We back up these ironclad guarantees with all-inclusive support via CollegeCare®, our carefully designed student support service, which is proven to give students a GPA boost of between 0.7 and 1.2 points on a four-point scale. This improvement may be all a student needs to gain admission to a top university!
