What is Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)?

Six University of California (UC) campuses offer guaranteed admission to students from all California community colleges (CCC). Interested students must meet campus-specific requirements to qualify for a UC TAG. By participating in a TAG program, students can ensure their admission to a specific UC campus, some of which offer early review of academic records, early admission notification, and specific guidance about major preparation and general education coursework.

Keep in mind: TAG applications begin September 1st and ends September 30th. You can only apply for TAG at one UC campus. Apply to other UC campuses during the application period to keep your options open.
