2.
and the last college the student attended in a regular session (fall/spring or fall/winter/spring) before
admission to a UC campus is/was a California community college. All UC TAG campuses require students
to meet the above listed definition.
Note: Students who have completed coursework at a four year university prior to the community college need to check with individual
UC campus regarding TAG eligibility and unit limitations. http://admission.universityofcalifornia.edu/transfer/guarantee/index.html
Who CAN NOT File a TAG?
