Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)

UCSB has a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) with all California community colleges. TAG offers guaranteed admission to California community college students who meet specific requirements.

TAG establishes criteria for guaranteed admission to UCSB for the fall term only. At UCSB, TAGs are available for all majors in the College of Letters and Science except performing arts majors. The TAG is not available for any majors in the College of Engineering or the College of Creative Studies. Students should refer to the ASSIST website under articulation agreements by major between UCSB and their community college for more specific details on articulated courses.

In order to be considered for TAG, students must submit an online TAG application and the UC application for undergraduate admission. The filing period for fall 2016 has ended. If you submitted a TAG for fall 2016, don't forget to submit the UC application from November 1-30, 2015. The filing period for fall 2017 admission will be September 1-30, 2016.
