   The differences between University of California, California State University,
   and the California Community Colleges
   The University of California has 10 campuses, more than 220,000 students, and                             UC San Diego Geisel Library
   is designed for the best qualified students. Only the top 12.5% of California high
   school students are eligible for entry, but a much smaller percentage is accepted.
   universityofcalifornia.edu
   The California State University has 23 campuses, over 433,000 students, and is
   much more inclusive than the University of California system. The top 25% of California
   high school students are eligible for entry. calstate.edu
   The California Community Colleges has 109 campuses, over 2.8 million students,
   and provides the first two years of college education only. Students spend their first
   two years at a community college and then transfer to one of the campuses of the
   University of California or California State University, to complete their last two years
   of undergraduate study. cccco.edu

UNIVERSITY AND PROFESSIONAL STUDIES (UPS)
The UPS program is also suitable for working professionals who wish to improve their knowledge to help
them stay current with industry trends and changes.
Universities in many countries count these credits towards their own bachelor’s or master’s degree programs.
Transferability is at the discretion of the home university and must be verified in advance by the student.       Line Holme Mehlum
