Transfer admission guarantee

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

By participating in a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program, students may receive early review of their 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.

How students should pursue TAG

  1. Students fill out an online TAG application and review it with you and/or a UC campus TAG adviser.
  1. Students must then fulfill all remaining coursework and GPA requirements in their TAG agreement.
  1. Finally, students apply for admission to UC during the appropriate filing period.
