UC Santa Barbara makes changes to their fall 2011 TAG Agreements
UC Santa Barbara (UCSB) has come out with the latest information on their Fall 2011 Transfer Admission Guarantee, or TAG, agreements. In a recent email to the community college community, they announce:
“Now that we’ve completed our admissions process and have had an opportunity to review our admit data, the following changes have been made to UCSB’s fall 2011-2012 TAG. These changes have been posted to our Admissions website as well under the prospective transfer student tab.”
We will highlight some of the major changes to UCSB’s TAG program that will be in effect for Fall 2011 applicants.
Major changes to Santa Barbara’s fall 2011 TAG include:
- Increase in overall UC GPA from 3.00 to 3.20 for the College of Letters & Science and College of Engineering by the end of the fall 2010 term.
- Increase in major preparatory GPA for the College of Engineering from 3.00 to 3.20. Chemical Engineering will not be covered in the fall 2011 TAG.
- Students may not earn less than 2.0 GPA during fall and spring academic terms.
- Students will be required to submit an online TAG. The filing period will be September 1-30th. Checking the TAG box on the admission application will not be accepted in lieu of an application.
- UCSB will no longer be posting the TAG criteria on ASSIST under the “by majors” agreements between UCSB and California community colleges. Instead, the fall 2011-2012 TAG criteria will be posted on our website at UCSB Admissions.
