All prospective UC TAG applicants are strongly encouraged to attend a UC TAG Application Workshop prior to submitting the UC TAG application online. 

STEP 1:  Complete the UC Santa Cruz TAG Eligibility Self-Assessment Questionnaire [PDF]. Revised 8/9/11

  • EOPS/CARE Students: Stop.  Do not proceed to Steps 2 - 6.  Click here for EOPS/CARE-specific procedures.

STEP 2:  If you believe you are eligible for the UC Santa Cruz TAG based on your responses to the questionnaire form, log-on to the UC TAG Application System external link icon after July 1 to begin working on your UC Santa Cruz TAG application.

  • Compile all of your academic transcripts and (if applicable) Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) exams for reference when completing the UC TAG application.
  • It is essential that all academic history is reported thoroughly and completely on the UC TAG application.

STEP 3:  Prior to submitting the UC TAG application, attend a UC TAG Application Workshop at De Anza to learn about TAG criteria, deadlines, and the TAG application process. Workshop attendance is optional but highly recommended for all UC TAG applicants.

STEP 4:  Submit the online UC Santa Cruz TAG Application during the UC TAG Application Filing Period (between September 1-30, 2011) to initiate a UC Santa Cruz TAG review by De Anza.

SPECIAL NOTICE: All UC Santa Cruz TAG applications will be forwarded to UC Santa Cruz, but only those that meet the TAG eligibility criteria based on De Anza’s final review will be recommended for approval to UC Santa Cruz.

Applicants who provide the documents listed below will help ensure an accurate review of their UC Santa Cruz TAG application and confirm their UC Santa Cruz TAG eligibility.

For applicants who do not submit these documents, De Anza will review their UC Santa Cruz TAG applications based on self-reported coursework only.

If you choose to submit the following documents you must do so within 3 working days after you submit the online UC TAG application in September. Documents may be delivered to the front desk in the Counseling & Advising Center (SCS Building, 2nd Floor) during operating hours.

  • A completed and signed copy of the UC Santa Cruz TAG Eligibility Self-Assessment Questionnaire (keep a copy for yourself).
  • Copies of all academic transcripts (excluding De Anza/Foothill Colleges) and AP or IB exam scores (even if you had them sent to De Anza previously). Unofficial transcripts and are acceptable for the purposes of De Anza's initial UC TAG review.

NOTE: Your name must be officially printed and clearly visible on all documents.

STEP 5:  Check the "My Messages" section on the UC TAG Application System external link icon and your e-mail account regularly for important messages. Your UC Santa Cruz TAG may be voided if you do not respond to requests in a timely manner (i.e. by specified deadlines).
