Transfer Admission Agreement / Guarantee (TAA/TAG)

A Transfer Admission Agreement (TAA) or Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG), is a contractual agreement that provides De Anza College students guaranteed admission to a participating California State University, University of California, independent or out-of-state institution.

A TAA/TAG may not be available for all majors, impacted programs, and colleges or schools at a participating TAA/TAG college or university. Students interested in completing a TAA/TAG must satisfy specified course and admission requirements in a timely manner in order to be guaranteed admission to the participating four-year institution.

Students who plan to complete a TAA/TAG are encouraged to meet with a university admissions representative (when available) or a De Anza College counselor/academic adviser at least one year prior to transferring to review TAA/TAG eligibility and requirements and to confirm course selection.

Visit the Meet with a Counselor page to view the academic services available through the De Anza College Counseling & Advising Center or stop by the Counseling & Advising Center or the Transfer Center located on the 2nd floor of the Student & Community Services Building.

Students interested in completing a TAA/TAG should review the specific eligibility requirements, terms and conditions, restrictions, and deadlines for each prospective TAA/TAG college or university or read the section below for UC TAG Applicants.

The names of participating campuses at De Anza College, minimum grade point average required for the TAA/TAG, minimum number of units required for the TAA/TAG, and the TAA/TAG contract filing periods are posted below.

TAA/TAG admission for Winter and Spring terms are subject to change without notice.  Visit the De Anza College Transfer Planning website for updates.

NOTE: Students in EOPS and the International Student Programs (F-1 Visa students) must work with their respective program counselors or academic advisers in order to submit a UC TAG. Please consult with the EOPS or ISP offices for any program-specific procedures.

Students are advised to attend a UC TAG Application Workshop in order to determine if they will be able to meet UC TAG program requirements.

GENERAL OVERVIEW

  1. Students may submit only one TAG to UC.
  2. Students should review campus-specific UC TAG requirements to determine eligibility prior to starting a TAG application.
  3. Eligible students must use the UC's online UC Transfer Admission Planner to complete a TAG application and must submit the TAG application during the appropriate TAG application filing period.
    • Fall: September 1 - 30 (all campuses)
    • Spring: May 1 - 31 (UC Merced only)
  4. Students with an approved TAG must complete all remaining coursework and maintain the GPA requirements designated in the TAG agreement.
  5. Students should check the UC TAG Application System ("My Messages" tab) for messages and requests for information.
  6. Students may begin working on their UC admissions application as soon as the UC Online Application System opens.  Beginning in 2014, the system is set to open on August 1.
  7. Students must submit the UC admissions application during the appropriate filing period (this is a separate process than the TAG application filing period):
    • Fall Term: November 1 - 30
    • Spring Term*: July 1 - 31 (*Applies to UC Merced campus only and subject to restrictions.)

Disclaimer:  The final responsibility for successful transfer rests with the student.  The information posted on the De Anza College Transfer Planning Web site is designed to assist you in obtaining the most accurate information possible.  However, this information is subject to change without notice, which may subsequently impact your admission to the University.

Students are encouraged to meet as early as possible and periodically with a counselor or academic adviser both at
De Anza College and at the transfer institution to confirm your choice of classes and to develop an education plan for transfer.
