students of the university of california must obtain the consent of the dean of their school or college prior to enrolling for credit in an extension course extension courses are not accepted as part of the residence requirements of the university grades earned in university extension are not used in calculating the university grade.point average decisions regarding the acceptability of extension courses taken in institutions other than the university of california rest with the uci office of admissions and relations with schools decisions regarding the applicability of such courses toward specific degrees · and majors rest with the student s academic dean course credit for work taken elsewhere the policies above refer only to the unit transferability of cour~es and are uniformly implemented on all uc campuses thus courses which are determined by the university of california to be transferable are assured only of being granted elective course credit the application of transfer work to specific course and major requirements is determined by the student s academic dean the irvine campus makes every effort to eliminate all barriers to orderly progress from california community colleges into uci s programs to this end courses from many california community colleges have been reviewed by uci faculty and approved as acceptable toward meeting lower-division major or general educa-· tion requirements although course equivalencies for the general education requirement may be liberally interpreted for purposes of transfer courses to be applied toward school and departmental major requirements must be more precisely equated with uci courses in unit value and in content all california community colleges have entered into articulation agreements with uci so that the specific application of their courses to uci s general education school and/or departmental major requirements may be readily communicated to prospective transfer students -by careful selection of courses it is possible for students to satisfy some or all of the lower-division requirements of their intended program or school prior to transfer it is recommended that transfer students complete as much of the lower-divi•sion general education school and major requirements as possible prior to transferring to uci articulation agreements are available at http www.assist.org students are urged to consult community college counselors or the uci office of admissions and relations with schools for information on planning a program for transfer prospective transfer students with specific questions about course work in their major should contact the respective school or department at uci registration and other procedures except where noted all information applies to both undergraduate and
