Students interested in applying to UCLA as an entering transfer student – coming from another college or university – should visit the UCLA Undergraduate Admission page.

You can find the application guide here.

To speak with a UCLA Admissions Officer, please call (310) 825-3101.

After applying, this site provides information about the timing of decisions and other questions.

Transfer students must be admitted to UCLA as Pre-Economics or Pre-Business Economics to pursue the Economics or the Business Economics major at UCLA.  Transfer students admitted under another major cannot switch into our department, and cannot add one of our majors as a double major.

In addition to the pages designed for prospective students, one can find out more information about the Department of Economics from our Economics Undergraduate Student Handbook and our Frequently Asked Questions.

Excellence for Economics (EXEC) Program

The Department of Economics is committed to the successful transition of transfer students to the campus community. After you are admitted, we encourage transfers to apply to our Excellence for Economics (EXEC) program. This will equip first-year transfer students with the skills and resources to excel academically, socially, and professionally.
