Majors and General Education

If you are entering college and you are not sure what major to choose, you are not alone! There are approximately 700 students at UC Merced who are Undeclared. Freshmen entering college are not expected to know which of the vast amounts of occupations available they want to dedicate themselves to, and being Undeclared is a good medium while you explore yourself and your passions.

Transfer Credit

Grades from Community Colleges do not transfer to UC Merced. Repeating courses at the community college that you initially failed at UC Merced will not replace your failed grade. However, you will receive subject credit. In addition, your UC Merced GPA will not increase if you take courses at a community college. Community colleges only offer lower division courses.
