University of California

Transfer Admission Guarantees (TAG) allows eligible students to enter into a contract with four-year universities.  These agreements provide guaranteed admissions upon fulfillment of the contract.

Six 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.

Under the agreement, students who apply to the schools and obtain a transfer-level associate degree with a GPA of 2.5 or higher and complete either the University of California Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum, or the California State University General Education Breadth pattern, will be guaranteed admission with junior standing.  Click here for more info.
