Transfer agreements

The University of California has moved to a common guarantee agreement that is called the Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG). TAGs are offered by seven of the nine UC campuses; Berkeley and UCLA do not offer the guarantee. For some campuses the TAG application must be reviewed by a DVC counselor prior to submission.  Please read the campus-specific information below carefully.

AB540 (undocumented) students are eligible to apply for a UC TAG.  International students with domestic coursework only may apply for a UC TAG.

If you need help filling out the online TAG form, stop by the Career, Employment and Transfer Center computer lab for assistance.

Important note: Even if you are approved for a TAG, you must still complete and submit the regular application during the regular admission filing period, Nov. 1-30.
