Why Apply for this course

University Bridge Transfer Programme at SMC (click for details)

  • Save on fee with a 2+2 programme - Average tuition fee for UC is about $55k – 60K/year compared to $34k/year for UBridge at Santa Monica College (SMC). 
  • Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) - This is a State agreement between the college (SMC) with selected 4-years degree universities, including UC, that allow students, who completed their associate degrees, to receive their university offers as long as they meet the minimum GPA of 3.20 (some transfers require GPA 3.40).
  • Excellent Track Record of UC Transfer - In 2019/2020, we have over 83% of UBridge students who transferred to UC. In 2020/2021, the number increased, with 93% transferring rate to UC. Besides UC, our students have also transferred to universities in Michigan, Maryland, Boston etc.
  • Choices of Undergraduate Majors - Students can choose from hundreds of sciences & arts majors offered across 10 UC campuses. STEM courses are most popular among Malaysian students, which include Engineering, Computer Science, Biosciences, Psychology, Mathematics, Physic etc.
  • Be more prepared at SMC - Students may struggle to cope with a new environment and education system, especially during the initial stages. This could be exacerbated when students do not get personalised attention since the lecture classes at UC can be huge; some reaching 1000 participants per class. Thus, students can be more prepared, if they start at California Community Colleges like SMC before transferring to degree studies in their desired UC campuses.
