About the UC Degree Completion Program

The UC Degree Completion Program (UCDCP) is a state-funded initiative designed to help Californians who have some college but no degree successfully earn their Bachelor's degree or a professional certificate, and advance their career.

UCDCP is student-centered and customized to each person's individual goals and circumstances. We offer comprehensive support services—from academic advising to free tutoring—that empower working professionals, and unemployed and underemployed adults to address the familial and professional and obligations and financial issues that impede degree completion, transfer eligibility and certificate attainment.

The program is an innovative partnership between UC Davis Continuing and Professional Education and UC Riverside Extension, and in collaboration with degree completion programs at UC Merced and UC Santa Barbara.
