UC TAG applications go online
UC TAG Applications Go Online
UC Santa Cruz is one of 10 UC’s that has traditionally done their Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) agreements on paper. Recently, UCSC made the decision to change the way in which they take TAG applications. To improve the process of applying for a TAG agreement, UC has introduced a new online TAG application that was made available July 1, 2010. The new TAG tool has that capability to now allow community college counselors to do online reviews and approvals. This not only saves time, but reduces paperwork for all involved.
The URL for the new online TAG application will be: TAG Tool
According to the Associate Director of Admissions at UCSC,
“We are very excited about this new TAG tool,” said Michael McCawley. “I believe this will be a win-win-win situation. Prospective students, community college counselors, and the UC campuses should all benefit from this bold initiative.”
All UC campuses that offer a TAG will use the new online application, which will use the student’s self-reported academic information. UC campuses that used to require official or unofficial transcripts as a part of their TAG process will no longer be requiring them to apply for a TAG.
In addition to saving time, the new online application provides:
- Self-service advisement within the application
- More efficient and timely communication among students, their TAG campuses, and their community colleges
- Improved communication between the UCs and the community colleges
- Reporting capabilities for community colleges
The UC TAG campuses have also agreed to a common filing period for TAG applications.
Students will now be required to file their electronic TAG applications between September 1 and 30 for fall 2011 consideration.
