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.

Upon confirming eligibility for a TAA/TAG, students are encouraged to meet with a university admissions representative (when available) or a De Anza College counselor or academic adviser to review and confirm course selection.  TAA/TAG advising is recommended at least one year prior to transfer.

TAA/TAG advising services are often limited in the Counseling & Advising Center and Transfer Center (located on the 2nd floor of the Student & Community Services Building).  Visit the Meet with a Counselor page for guidelines and how to prepare for an appointment with a counselor or academic adviser.

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.

REMINDERS:

  • UC will notify TAG applicants about the status of their TAG application no later than November 15, 2015.  Students can log on to the UC Transfer Admission Planner (TAP) system to check for messages and to track the status of their TAG application.

  • All UC TAG applicants must fill out out the application for admission to UC and submit it between November 1 – 30, 2015. Failure to do so will nullify any approved TAG agreement.

Disclaimer:  The final responsibility for successful transfer rests with the student.  The information posted on the De Anza College Transfer Planning Website 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.
