Prospective MCS Transfer Students
The UC Davis Earth and Planetary Sciences department welcomes prospective transfer students. We advise careful planning, as many of our courses are only offered once a year. The following information is provided for your convenience, but is not meant to replace a consultation with one of our undergraduate advisors.
Prior to transferring into UC Davis, students must meet the Transfer Admission requirements. For the Marine and Coastal Science major at UC Davis, we strongly recommend that transfer students complete preparatory coursework equivalent to the following:
- BIS 2A-B-C
- CHE 2A-B-C
- MAT 16A-B-C or 17A-B-C or 21A-B-C
- PHY 7A-B-C or 9A-B-C
- CHE 8A-B (for focus in Marine Ecology and Organismal Biology only)
Students interested in the focus area in Marine Ecology and Organismal Biology must complete prerequisite courses to be eligible for admission.
