Prospective Applicants

Regents Scholars are selected on the basis of information contained in their UC application, so even current Regents Scholars cannot give very much advice on how to get through the selection process. Suffice to say, if you are hoping to receive the Regents Scholarship, it is probably a good idea to go above and beyond the normal A-G requirements even if you feel assured of acceptance to a UC.

Transfer applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.80 and submit an online letter of recommendation for consideration. Visit to learn more about the Regents Scholarship and how scholars are selected.

And of course, the most important thing to keep in mind is to never give up -- the only way to make sure you are eligible for the Regents Scholarship is to complete the UC application for Davis.

We wish you the best in your college search and hope to see you in a few years!
