A Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG), is a formal agreement between a student in attendance at Gavilan College and a receiving baccalaureate granting institution to which the student intends to transfer. The agreement guarantees admission to a transfer university a year in advance for a fall term admission.A TAG may also guarantee admission into a major. Because the requirements of universities vary, it is advisable that students consult a counselor for more detailed information. Counselors will help you determine your eligibility for a TAG and assist with the required documents.
Determine Eligibility for TAG
- review the TAG basic eligibility by accessing university links below
- read the university website (follow the links) for major preparation requirements
- collect all transcripts (Gavilan and any college attended)
- collect all test scores (Advance Placement, CLEP, IBB)
- calculate transferable units and transferable GPA and compare with minimum TA requirements
After completing steps 1-5, students can schedule a counseling appointment to review UC eligibility and TAG. You must hand-carry transcripts and test score information to your appointment. Counseling appointments can be scheduled online: www.gavilan.edu/counseling
