Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)

Updated TAG information coming soon! 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 receive early review of their academic records, early admission notification, and specific guidance about major preparation and general education coursework.

UC TAG Application filing period: September 1-30 TAG Matrix (for fall admission) and May 1-31 (for winter admission).

File your application on-line at http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/transfer/guarantee/

Please note:  UC Davis and UC Santa Cruz require California Community College approval for TAG. If you are applying to UCD and UCSC schedule an appointment with a counselor. If you meet the TAG requirements for the specific campus and major, the counselor will do the paperwork with you.

ESL Spotlight

Alma Garcia
Structural Engineer

"I came from Mexico at age17, which meant I not only had to learn English at a High School level, but had to prepare for college-level courses. During my first semesters at AHC I enrolled in ESL, and made extensive use of their writing lab, which I believe was critical in my transition to transfer level classes. Engineering is a difficult major on its own, but learning all those concepts and terminology while just getting out of ESL classes was a challenge. AHC professors, counselors and programs were key to my success."
