TRANSFER ADMISSION GUARANTEES
We have guaranteed transfer admission agreements with several colleges and universities. Transfer Admission Guarantees (TAG) allows eligible students to write a contract with four-year universities. These agreements provide guaranteed admissions upon fulfillment of the contract.
Seven University of California (UC) campuses offer guaranteed admission to California community college students who meet specific requirements. The filing period is September 1 – 30 for transfer in the fall semester of the next year. We also have a transfer admission agreement with Golden Gate University. See the links at the top right of this page.
For more information about the TAG, come to the Counseling office or call (510) 464-3152 to schedule an appointment with a counselor before the deadline.
