UC transfer admission focuses on grades, completion of your general education and major prerequisite requirements and demonstrated interest in your field of study. Make sure you have good grades, complete all required courses and participate in clubs/community service/internship/job in your chosen field to demonstrate your interest. Meet with your CCC counselor and make your intentions to transfer to a UC known. Work closely with your counselor to plan your course schedule so you can complete your general education and major prerequisite requirements. You should also talk to your counselor about participating in TAG and honors/scholars programs as mentioned below. All UCs, except Berkeley and UCLA, have Transfer Admission Guarantee with all California community colleges. For general TAG information, see http://uctransfer.universityofcalifornia.edu/pdf/tag_matrix_and_form.pdf I have a list of links to campus-specific TAG guidelines at http://www.askmssun.com/cc-admission.htm#tag Choose a CCC with honors/scholars program and apply to participate in the program: http://www.honorstcc.org/ Participation in the program gives you priority registration that will ensure prompt completion of your required courses. UCLA also gives additional consideration to applicants who participate in honors/scholars program: http://www.admissions.ucla.edu/prospect/adm_tr/adm_cco/tap.htm

Well, first you can get an associate's degree, that is the 2 year degree, but due to budget cuts and overpopulated student bodies, it may take an extra year. Get your general education done first, and always check in with a counselor once in awhile, build a good relationship and they will help you through it.

Just make sure you are taking transferable classes. Otherwise you're throwing your money away and you'll have to take them over again at the university. Talk to your advisor and make sure you are making the right choices for classes.

Are you wanting to transfer to Wellesley? Or Emory? If you're that confused about the question you're posing, maybe you're a bit too confused and frustrated at this moment to think about transferring anywhere. Why did you choose DePaul initially? Perhaps you need to re-examine your reason for choosing, not only that college, but your reason for attending college. Anyone's first year in college, and first year away from home, can be daunting. New surroundings, new friends, new experiences. Some adapt quicker than others. Let me suggest you give yourself more time to become acclimated to the college experience. Good luck!
