TAG: You can be it

Jennifer Ovalle

The Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program exists free of charge and seeks to help community college students successfully transfer to
participating University of California and California State University campuses.

Students have the opportunity to be part of this program provided they set an academic plan with their counselors as well as meeting other requirements.

UC requirements include completing 60 semester units and most, if not all, of their lower-division major prerequisites.

“It’s an opportunity for students to make a decision where they want to go and they know that if they follow those criteria, they’re going to be admitted guaranteed to that university of their choice,” said Transfer Center Director Dr. Marilyn Harvey.

Applicants can submit their information through the respective TAG websites (below) starting on Sept. 1. The deadline is Sept. 30.

The campus Transfer Center, located in room A-111, offers help preparing applicants for the TAG program as well as additional transfer information. The Counseling Center in room A-110 can offer assistance as well.
