What is a TAG?

A Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) allows you, as a California community college student, to earn guaranteed acceptance to a university, as long as you follow university-specific instructions, guidelines, and criteria.

Six (6) University of California (UC) campuses offer guaranteed admission to students from all California community colleges. You can submit a TAG to only one.

  • UC TAG submission for fall 2020 is open Sept. 1-30, 2019.

Counseling and Verifications Forms
One key resource available to each and every student is the Counseling Center. It is instrumental that you meet with a counselor at least once each quarter for a 30 minute counseling session. We have developed a Counseling Verification form to help guide you through your appointment that is due the last day of the quarter! The form is attached to this email, has been handed out you in orientation, can be uploaded from our web page or picked up from the brochure display outside of our office (1961). Simply take the form with you to your appointment and your counselor will fill it out and sign it, then return it to me (screenshot via email or drop it off in person). We have four amazing honors counselors (Debra Lew, Cathy Denver, Fatima Jinnah, or Lety Serna), but please feel free to see any Foothill counselor that you want. The most important thing is that you find someone you can connect with and that you stick with him or her. Counseling appointments can be made by following this link
