Intercampus Exchange

The University of California Intercampus Exchange program allows graduate students to take courses on another campus of the university while remaining registered on the home campus. It provides the opportunity for contact with scholars, fields of study, and facilities not available on the home campus. The student pays fees only to the home campus, and grades for courses taken at the host campus are reported to the Office of the Registrar for inclusion on the student's UCSF transcript. Applications can only be approved for the fall, winter, and spring quarters. Courses taken in the spring term at campuses using semesters will be recorded in UCSF's spring quarter.

Complete an Application for Intercampus Exchange Program.

Four signatures are required:

  • Graduate advisor
  • Dean of Graduate Studies on the home campus
  • Chair of the department in which the desired course is offered on the host campus
  • Dean of the Graduate Division on the host campus.

Home campus signatures are required before the host campus will approve.

Forms must be signed by your graduate advisor and then e-mailed to [email protected] at least three weeks before the quarter begins.

UCSF students must list Intercampus Exchange courses on the San Francisco study list in order to receive proper credit. Study lists and other forms may be required for the host campus as well.

Courses taken on another campus must be related directly to the student's degree program. Lower division undergraduate courses may not be taken on Intercampus Exchange.
