Guaranteed Admission Programs

UC Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)

Six UC campuses offer guaranteed admission to California Community College students who meet specific requirements. UCLA, UC Berkeley and UC San Diego do not participate in the TAG program. TAG applications are due by September 30 the same year a student submits their application for admission. A TAP account is required to submit a TAG application (a student can "TAG" one campus only). 

The UC TAG Matrix is updated annually with TAG requirements for each campus and major.

Transfer Guarantee to Historically Black Colleges & Universities

California Community Colleges have a Transfer Guarantee with 21 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Students who complete certain academic requirements are guaranteed transfer to a participating HBCU.

Most HBCU’s are located in the South and on the East Coast. They were founded after the Civil War to serve the higher education needs of the African-American community, however, they are open to students of all ethnicities.
