Graduate School of Education and Information Studies

Admission and Degree Requirements


Admission criteria established by the UCLA Graduate Division require a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution comparable in standards and content to a bachelor’s degree from the University of California. A scholastic grade-point average of B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better — or its equivalent if the letter grade system is not used — is required for the last 60 semester units or last 90 quarter units of undergraduate study and in any postbaccalaureate study. Additional requirements for international students are explained in the Graduate Study chapter. See Graduate Division admission.

Departments and programs in the school set additional admission requirements. See the school admissions web page.
