Transfer Admission Guarantee

Several UC campuses offer guaranteed admission to California community college students who meet specific requirements.

By participating in a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program, you will receive early review of your academic records, early admission notification and specific guidance about major preparation and general education coursework.

The TAG matrix [PDF] provides a list of participating campuses, eligibility criteria and campus-specific notes.

  1. Use the online Transfer Admission Planner to complete a TAG application, and review it with your community college counselor and/or UC campus TAG adviser.
  1. When your TAG is approved, fulfill all remaining coursework and GPA requirements in your TAG agreement.
  1. Apply for admission to UC during the appropriate filing period.
