Submit all documents to the UC San Diego Financial Aid Office before designated deadlines if you wish to be considered for Financial Aid. Please see the Financial Aid Office website  for more information.

  All transfer students are required to complete two courses of The Making of the Modern World (MMW) Program, regardless of whether they have certified completion of a transfer agreement from another institution (ie: UC Reciprocity or IGETC). In addition, for transfer students who do not have a certified completion of a transfer agreement, ERC Academic Advising will carefully evaluate prior coursework and apply as many courses as possible towards satisfaction of ERC's general education requirements.

Math Placement

While ERC does not require calculus as a general education requirement, it is required of many majors at UCSD (see Majors Requiring Mathematics). If you need calculus or pre-calculus for your major and you have NOT completed a college level calculus course, an AP calculus exam with a score of 3 or higher, or a higher level IB with a score of 6, you must take the Math Placement Exam (MPE). If you have AP or IB credit, official scores must be sent to UCSD Admissions. We strongly encourage you to take the MPE prior to enrollment in late August if possible. Exam dates are available in September before the start of the quarter as well. For a complete list of dates, please visit Math Placement Exam.
