Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)
Nothing feels better than getting a guaranteed place at UC. Which is exactly what TAG offers, at any one of six UC campuses. Follow the four steps below and secure your UC TAG.
1. Choosing your campus
Before you apply, figure out where you want to go. Check out our TAG matrix for a full list of the campuses in the program, and their individual requirements.
2. Complete your TAG application
Use our Transfer Admission Planner to fill out your TAG application. If you have a community college counselor, review it with them. Don’t worry if you don’t—we have our own UC TAG advisors who can help you out. You’ll need to submit by September 30th for the fall term, or May 31st for the winter/spring term. Remember, if you miss the TAG deadline, you can still apply to UC during the regular application period (October 1–November 30).
3. Fulfill all your requirements
Once your application’s submitted, you’ll need to complete all your remaining coursework, and hit the GPA requirements in your TAG agreement.
4. Submit your UC application
When you’re on track for all of the above, fill out the application for admission to UC. Make sure you submit your application between October 1–November 30 for the fall term and between July 1-31 for the winter/spring term.
