Finding a Transfer Course to Meet a UC Merced Requirement

First, you'll need to determine which course(s) you'd like to transfer into UC Merced. Once you have that information, there are two websites you can use to help you determine which course you should take at a community college over the summer to meet a UC Merced requirement.

http://www.assist.org/

Once at assist.org, you can select University of California, Merced and then select the community college you are interested in attending. You can then explore classes by major or department.
