Admissions Can TAG agreements from CCC to UC be declined even if you meet all the requirements?

  1. Dec 13, 2016 #1
    The topic basically says it all, sorry if it shouldn't be that long but I'm new. First and foremost I must say that I'm planning on transferring from a California community college to UCSC using the TAG, I'm worried that I'll be rejected for some reason or another.

    You won't be rejected, but you may not get your first choice of major. If your CCC GPA is good (3.5+), I wouldn't worry too much.

    Thanks for the response it's just that the whole TAG process seems too good to be true, anybody who loves what there learning shouldn't have a problem doing well in that subject. It's usually the extras that get them, clubs and so fourth, not being apart of any or volunteer work. I was wondering if not having any of that to go along with the TAG might hurt your chances?

    Nope, it is what it is, at least when I looked into it 4+ years ago. Basically, complete igetc, have 3.0+ GPA and apply to schools that participate in TAG. The only drawback is if your major is impacted, you may not be able to transfer into that major depending on transfer GPA.

    Thanks, yeah I keep a keen eye on that website. It's just I've seen a lot of people transferring and being rejected and wondering why they don't use the TAG, I asked one guy that's in my intro physics class and he says it's "not a forsure thing" and the counselors are always saying "nothing is guaranteed" so I wondered.

    Nothing is ever guaranteed, even with TAG you might not get into the major you wanted. If you meet all the requirements you will get in though.

    I wager to bet a lot of students don't know about TAG, or ULink, or any of the other programs to help them get into UC. There are also a lot of students who're rather marginal at CC, who're looking to get into "easier schools" compared to the UC campuses. There is also a significant portion who aren't looking to transfer for anything, and are there because their parents threatened to kick them out if they didn't go to school. Normally "good students" (read high GPA's) are trying for the Berkeley moonshot, which doesn't participate in TAG or ULink or ect so they never actually sign up for the programs.

    I used ULink for UCSD, probably didn't need to though.

    True, at the same time almost all accepted transfers to uc are from ccc according to the uc website, so I figure l most likely misunderstood the counselor when we were discussing it.
