Interested students must meet campus-specific requirements to qualify for a UC TAG. By participating in a TAG program, you can ensure your admission to a specific UC campus, some of which offer an early review of your academic record, early admission notification (no later than November 15, 2013 for a fall 2014 TAG), and specific guidance on major preparation and general education coursework. UCLA and UCB do not accept TAGs. UCSD will not accept TAGs after Fall 2014 admissions
w w w. s h a s t a c o l l e g e. e d u / t r a n s f e r / Who can file a TAG Transfer students do not have to participate in TAG to be considered for admission. Non-TAG students must also apply for UC admission during the appropriate application filing period (see www.universityofcalifornia.edu/apply). www.universityofcalifornia.edu/apply Only students transferring directly from a California Community College are considered for a TAG, including international students (those with a visa). The University of California defines a CCC transfer student as one who has completed over half of their units at a CCC. All UC TAG campuses require students to meet this definition. - Students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree, graduate degree, and/or professional degree cannot participate in TAG. - Students who have previously enrolled at a UC campus during a regular term (not including summer session) cannot submit a TAG application to return to that campus.
