WHAT IS A TRANSFER ADMISSION GUARNATEE (TAG) ?
A TAG is a written agreement between the student, the community college and a specific 4-year college or university, which states that if the student meets the requirements, the student is admitted. The TAG helps the student to understand:
- The courses he or she must complete before transferring
- The minimum GPA he or she must earn
- The number of units required to transfer
- The specific requirements for high-demand majors
A TAG is a free, quick and easy way to determine if the student is eligible for admission to a specific college or university. The TAG secures a seat at a selected college or university, provided that the student meets the conditions specified in the agreement.
WHEN TO START A TAG
It depends on the school that the student wants to attend. If the student wants a TAG with any of the UC schools, the TAG is generally submitted one year prior to the student planning to transfer.
