Transfer Admissions Agreements
A Transfer Admission Agreement (TAA) or 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 TAA 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 TAA and complete the required documents. Schedule a counseling appointment online: www.gavilan.edu/counseling.
Seven UC campuses participate in the TAA program and require an online TAG application. One CSU campus accepts TAG's and they require a paper TAG contract and the completion of the CSU admissions application
Planning is critical to ensure your TAG is complete, processed and approved. Schedule your counseling appointment prior to application submission deadlines. Counseling appointments are web-scheduled: www.gavilan.edu/counseling
Determine Eligibility for TAA/TAG
After completing steps 1-5, students can schedule a counseling appointment to initiate the paper CSU application and to review UC eligibility . You must hand-carry transcripts and test score information to your appointment. Counseling appointments can be scheduled online: www.gavilan.edu/counseling
