UC TAG Information Update

Because there is a new system for submitting the TAG application, the DVC Counseling Center has instituted a new process for seeking help from a counselor regarding a TAG application:
1. Students should first create an account on the UC TAG website and completely fill out the TAG application. If they need help with that process, they should visit the Transfer Center at DVC. Here is a link to the UC TAG website:https://uctag.universityofcalifornia.edu/index.cfm
2. Students submitting a TAG for Davis or Santa Cruz must get approval from a counselor, so after filling out the TAG application completely online, students must make an appointment with a DVC counselor. For information on how to schedule an appointment, visit http://www.dvc.edu/org/departments/counseling/appointment.htm. Schedule the appointment for early to mid-September; if you wait until later, you might not be able to get an appointment with a counselor before the submission deadline of September 30.
3. Remember Berkeley and Los Angeles do not offer a TAG, but all other UC's do, and F-1 international students are invited to apply for the TAG.
4. Before you submit a TAG application, be sure to read the TAG criteria for the campus(es) to which you are applying to be sure you meet the criteria. You the student are responsible for understanding the various TAG criteria and making sure that you meet those criteria.
5. Be sure to submit a UC application for the campuses to which you submitted a TAG during the UC application filing period, November 1-30.
