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.
