UC TAG Deadline Extended to 10/15

The UC Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) application deadline has been extended to Thursday, October 15, 2020 (source).

What You Need to Know About TAG

You must apply for TAG through the Transfer Admission Planner. Remember to replicate your transcript in the “Coursework” section.

Keep in mind that the Transfer Admission Planner and the UC Application are TWO SEPARATE SYSTEMS. You MUST set up an account on each system and submit both applications for your TAG to be considered. Your TAG major MUST MATCH the major you have on your UC Application for the UC campus where you filed TAG; if the TAG major and your major for that UC campus on the UC Application do NOT match, your TAG will be VOIDED.

UCs that provide pre-evaluation of coursework (Davis and Merced) should notify you of your TAG decisions by mid-November.

Please review the Fall 2021 TAG Matrix for a campus-by-campus comparison of the TAG benefits, restrictions, and requirements. For some UCs, you must meet the TAG requirements as early as the end of summer term before you apply, so make sure you have fulfilled all requirements within the timeline imposed by the campus where you intend to apply for TAG.

Campus TAG Requirements

Remember that some majors are excluded for TAG; only the majors that accept TAG will be in the “Choose a major” drop-down box in the “Apply for a Transfer Admission Guarantee” section of the TAP. Complete the application today so you have enough time to deal with unexpected situations (like finding out you don’t meet the GPA requirement or that TAG is not available for your major at the campus you want).
