Planning out your transfer admission

Admission to the university as a community college transfer is a cost-effective way to earn your bachelor's degree. A successful transfer requires thoughtful research and planning to make sure you're ready for the rigors of upper-division studies at a top-tier university. UC Davis and the University of California offer several resources to help you position yourself for admission to a UC campus.

UC Transfer Admission Planner (TAP)

The UC TAP helps you track the coursework required to transfer from any community college to a UC campus. The UC TAP is also your application for a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) at any participating UC campus. Plus, once you're ready to submit your UC application, the UC TAP will import over most of your information!

More about TAP

Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)

The UC Davis TAG assures your  admission to UC Davis, one year before your planned enrollment. As a California community college student, you can use the UC TAP to apply for a UC Davis TAG in September, the fall before you plan to enroll at UC Davis.
