Transfer Admission Guarantee

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:

  1. The courses he or she must complete before transferring
  2. The minimum GPA he or she must earn
  3. The number of units required to transfer
  4. 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.
