Transfer Students


UCLA admitted transfer students declared under ANY major are eligible to apply to Global Studies, however, pre-Glbl St students will have priority to be admitted over students planning to switch or add Glbl St as a double major.

Incoming transfer students must apply Fall of their junior year (your first quarter at UCLA). Application information and dates are available under the Applying to the Glbl St Major tab. Please make sure you sign up for summer orientation and sign up to attend the Glbl St Departmental counseling session to learn about requirements and application process. Please e-mail us if you can't attend orientation at idps@international.ucla.edu. 


In addition to reviewing Assist.org and UCLA's Admissions page make sure to review our website for additional major information. Please remember:

  • You will have to submit a supplemental application to be admitted to the Glbl St major after your are admitted to UCLA.
  • You may complete the foreign language requirement (intermediate level) at UCLA via placement exam or appropriate coursework, or abroad.


If you hold an F1 visa and attended high school where instruction was not in English, the Glbl St foreign language requirement may be waived. Please check with your Glbl Stcounselor.


Please review the Transfer Student Handbook and let us know if you have questions!
