Summer Coursework at Other Institutions

Summer is a good opportunity to take additional coursework to catch-up or maintain your academic progress at UC Merced. Before registering for summer coursework at another institution, it is vital to first meet with your academic advisor.

Helpful Websites

California Community Colleges

ASSIST is an online system that shows how course credits earned at public California community colleges can be transferred to California public four-year universities. Utilize this website when looking to find courses to take over the summer at community college. Note: Only lower-division courses are offered at community colleges.

Other UC, CSU and Private Four-year Universities

If you are interested in taking a course at another UC, CSU or private four-year university, you will need to first speak to your academic advisor.

Math and Science Course Articulations

The School of Natural Sciences has a large database of approved course equivalents at UCs or other four-year institutions. If a course is not listed on the website, you will need to submit a course approval form.

Important Information about Transfer Credit

  • All courses must be taken for a letter grade. Grades of C- or better must be earned in order for credit to be awarded
