Community College Transfer Pathways

UC Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) Matrix  

While UC has always admitted transfer students in recent years, our president has mandated that each UC campus achieve the enrollment goal of 2 FR for every 1 TR.

UC High School Counselors Conference

Screen_Shot_2020-02-16_at_5.45.52_AM.png

Junior Level  Transfer 
Completion of 2 years of community college after graduating high school, and entering UC as a Junior.

1. Complete 60 semester (90 quarter) units of transferable college credit with a GPA of at least 2.4 (2.8 for nonresidents). No more than 14 semester (21 quarter) units may be taken Pass/Not Pass.

2. Complete the following course pattern requirements:

  • Two transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) in English composition
  • One transferable college course (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units) in mathematical concepts and quantitative reasoning;
  • Four transferable college courses (3 semester or 4-5 quarter units each) chosen from at least two of the following subject areas:
    • the arts and humanities
    • the social and behavioral sciences
    • the physical and biological sciences

 

Keep in mind:

  • Each course must be worth at least 3 semester or 4 quarter units.
  • Students need to earn a grade of C or better in each course or a Pass (P) grade if pass is equivalent to a C (2.00)
  • AP exam scores of 3, 4, or 5 may be used in appropriate subject areas (exception: only one of the two English courses required can be satisfied by an AP exam score)

UC Transfer Admission Guaratee (TAG)

Guarantees admission to students who complete 2 years of community college after graduating high school, in specific programs at 6 of the 9 UC campuses and entering UC as a Junior.

Only students transferring directly from a California community college (CCC) are considered for a TAG, including international students (those with a visa).

A CCC transfer student is one who has completed at least 30 semester (45 quarter) UC-transferable units at one or more California community colleges.

Not Eligible for a TAG: Students who have already earned a bachelor’s, graduate and/or professional degree; students previously enrolled at a UC campus during a regular term (not including summer session only) who plan to return to that same campus; and students concurrently enrolled in high school at the time of TAG application submission.

To pursue a TAG, students must:

● Complete the online TAG application and submit it during the appropriate filing period – September 1-30, 2019 for fall 2020 admission (or May 1-31, 2020 for winter/spring 2021) at uctap.universityofcalifornia.edu.

● Once a TAG is submitted, fulfill all remaining coursework and GPA requirements designated on the TAG agreement.

● Apply for admission to UC during November 1-30, 2019 for fall 2020 (or July 1-31, 2020 for winter/spring 2021) at apply.universityofcalifornia.edu. TAG students must submit a UC application; submitting the TAG application alone is not enough.

**Students are strongly encouraged to consult with their community college counselor prior to completing/submitting the TAG application.

UC Berkeley, UCLA and UC San Diego do not participate in the TAG Transfer Program.

Students can only submit a TAG to one campus, and they need to meet the requirements forthat campus and major in order to qualify.•If a student wants to pursue Pathways+, the Pathways major and TAG major must be the samemajor.•Regardless of whether the student pursues a Pathways major or Pathways+, the student mustapply for admission to the TAG campus in the same major (primary/1st choice) as was listed inthe TAG agreement. Applying for admission to the TAG campus under a different major willinvalidate the guarantee (even if the student lists the TAG major as the alternate major on theapplication). Students are welcome to apply to different majors at the other campuses.

 

Pathways+ will guarantee CCC students admission to a UC campus (their preferred TAG campus) and better prepare students to succeed in their major when they arrive on campus, so they’re more likely to graduate within two years.  

First-time Freshmen CCC/High School Dual Enrollment 

Will transfer as a first-time freshman to a UC not as a community college transfer student.

Dual Enrollment Guidance For California High School and California Community College Counselors and Advisers

Many questions are generated surrounding UC admissions and the dual enrollment programs that exist between California high schools and California community colleges. The following points are meant to dispel some of the misinformation and speculation about dual enrollment programs and courses, including how dual enrollment coursework is reported on the UC admission application and how it is used to meet freshman admission requirements:

  • College courses are college courses, even if they are taught on the high school campus by an approved high school faculty member. 
  • Students must report dual enrollment college courses under the appropriate college name on the UC application for undergraduate admission. Dual enrollment courses cannot be reported on the application as high school coursework.
  • California high schools cannot add California community college courses to their UC approved A-G Course List, even though instruction may happen on the high school campus with a high school instructor.
  • UC-transferable college courses that fall within the A-G subject areas, including those completed through dual enrollment, will earn an extra point in the UC freshman admission GPA calculation - within our maximum honors points limitations - if completed with a letter grade of C or better. Refer to the Quick Reference Guide to UC Admissions for more information about honors points and the GPA calculation. 

Note: one college course earns one grade and one honors point in the GPA calculation, even though the single course may meet one year of a high school subject requirement.

  • Students who are offered admission to UC will be required to submit an official college transcript for all college courses completed, including courses completed through a dual enrollment program. This is in addition to the final official high school transcript.
  • The high school, not UC, decides what to include on the high school transcript. However, even if dual enrollment courses are reported on the high school transcript, students are still required to submit an official college transcript for their college coursework.
  • If the high school chooses to report dual enrollment courses on the high school transcript, clearly indicating which courses are college level is helpful to UC.

UC Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) for students Applying for 2020-2021 Admission

A community college Transfer student is defined as a student who:

Has completed at least 30 semesters (45 quarter) UC-transferable units (one year of community college at a California community college) 

Who is not eligible for a TAG

Students who have already earned a bachelor’s, graduate and/or professional degree;

Students previously enrolled at a UC campus during a regular term (not including summer session only) who plan to return to that same campus;

Students concurrently enrolled in high school at the time of TAG application submission.

These are the 26 People that won't let California residents have a seat at our public university even though California taxpayers pay for it.

They represent some of the wealthiest, most powerful people in the State of California (the 6th largest economy in the world)... can't they pay for their own parties? Really? They expect students to pay for it with increased tuition expenses?

    • “Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) has emerged as one of the staunchest proponents of closer U.S. relations with China, fighting for permanent most-favored-nation trading status for Beijing.” 
    • “At the same time, far from the spotlight, Feinstein’s husband, Richard C. Blum, has expanded his private business interests in China--to the point that his firm is now a prominent investor inside the communist nation.”

My Voter Guide

Dawn Urbanek, Taxpayer and Student Advocate

CUSDWatch.com 

AMENDED FEBRUARY 11, 2020 to clarify my statements regarding Jake Vollebregt and Greg Rath

President: Donald Trump 

I am very happy with the direction the country is going in and as such I want to give the Trump administration 4 more years to finish the work they have started.

 

Member, County Central Committee 73rd Assembly District

Watch this video for some great insights:

 

Definite NO on Lisa Bartlett and Ed Sachs (I personally feel these two people have done more to harm San Clemente residents than any elected officials currently in office).

I agree with the point in the video that you want candidates that are not holding or running for other offices. So that would eliminate:

No on Greg Raths, Laurie Davies, Mike Munzing and Elaine Gennawey

The current Orange County GOP Central Committee members are:

Laurie Davies (Laguna Niguel)

Jennifer Beall (Ranch Santa Margarita)

Tony Beal (Ranch Santa Margarita)

Mike Munzing (San Clemente? - he is Mayor of Aliso Viejo- San Clemente appears not to be reprsented)

Definite NO on Ms. Toll Road Lisa Bartlett (Dana Point)

Definite NO on Mr. Toll Road Ed Sachs (Mission Viejo). 

You Decide on the following three people

No on Diane L. Harkey: Republican that has been in office a long time and I just feel it is time to get some new blood in Orange County.

No DD Dominguez: I like her position against Prop 13, but liked the following Candidates more.

No Art Sanchez: I am having a hard time seeing where he is- lots of internet reference to many people on the progressive side that promoted PTA positions that I did not agree with.

No Greg Rath: Because her already holds office

 

My Votes:

YES Greg Rath: I am voting yes on Greg Rath because he supported San Clemente on the Toll Road vote

Mayor of Mission Viejo opposed the Toll Road when the City of Mission Viejo voted to formualize support to relieve traffic in Orange County. He was the only council member to oppose.

YES Nick Wilson: Liked the video

YES Linda Kight: Spent some time on her facebook page and liked her positions. Where did the Lottery Money Go. No on Prop 13.

YES Jake Vollebregt: Got to know him personally when he ran for Trustee of the Capistrano Unified School District. I think and hope he will take the Republican party in a new direction.

He was denied the Trustee seat by a ridicules stunt on the part of Trustees. They produced a letter stating of support for the completion of SR 241 Toll Road nd stated that it would be a conflict to have him as a Trustee because he sits on the South Orange County Economic Colition which also supports the toll road completion. I received a copy of the letter Trustees referred to, to block his selection through a public records request which I have attached at the end of the voter's guide. 

YES Candice Burroughs: Liked her letter as outgoing president of Laguna Niguel Republican Women Federated on page 4

YES Shawn M Gordon: I have gotten to know Shawn when he ran for Trustee of the Capistrano Unified School District and I agree with his positions on most of the issues that we are facing today. Love the video Shawn!!

 

United States Representative 49th District

YES Brian Maryott: I have gotten to know Bryan Maryott working on toll road and school district issues. He seems to genuinely care about THE PEOPLE and works towards common sense solutions. 

 

Member of the State Assembly 73rd District

YES on Bill Brough: The Republican party has been a major disappointment to me for many years and for many reasons. The politics in south orange county is toxic and has been very dysfunctional for many years. I place the blame on the Central Committee and the leaders of the Republican party. What they have done to Bill Brough is a disgrace. So I am supporting Bill Brough and voting to replace the member of the Central Committee and hope that we can start making California sane again.

 

Judge for the Superior Court Office No. 4

No on Tony Ferrentino Assistant District Attorney.  I have no confidence in the Orange County District Attorney's office under the previous District Attorney Tony Rackauckas and the current District Attorney Todd Spitzer. The corruption in Orange County is stunning and I would personally like to see a federal investigation into the conduct of the OC Board of Supervisors and the District Attorney. It's a big no for me.

 

Prop 13

NO on Prop 13

$15 Billion Dollar School Facility Bond] A Trick to overturn the original Prop 13. I have personally done extensive research on school facility bonds in the State of California and this is a really BIG NO FOR ME. 

1978

California Voters Pass Prop 13.

Prop 13 removed the ability for school districts to issue local bonds. Proposition 13 also capped local property tax and virtually eliminated tax increases based on assessed valuation. After the passage of Prop 13 the State was forced to assume the primary role of funding Public Education and school facilities. The State Allocation Board began providing school districts with significant school facility grant funds. 

My Research:

CUSDWatch: NO MORE SCHOOL FACILITY BOND DEBT IN CALIFORNIA

CUSDWatch: LOCAL SCHOOL FACILITY BOND MEASURES (CA is $1.3 trillion in debt thanks to our School Debt- no more!)

 

Measure A 

YES on Measure A  

A vote to require a 2/3 vote of the Board of Supervisors to Propose new taxes. Increases in taxes should always require a vote of 2/3 not a simple majority 51%. All school bond measures pass because they are a simple majority. 

 

Measure H

NO on Measure H 

I wrote the Ballot Statement against Measure H

Documentation: No on Measure H: CUSD 2020 Souther SFID

PAY TO PLAY Alive and Well at CUSD - Look who is supporting Measure H

The Solution: Ask the State for additional funding - they have $55 billion sitting in their high speed rail account that they accumulated by intentionally underfunding low poverty school districts.

NO MORE SCHOOL FACILITY BOND DEBT IN CALIFORNIA

10,000 California Resident students who graduate in the top 12.5% of their high school graduation class who are guaranteed admission to the University of CA as a matter of law, based solely on merit are denied admission because of discriminatory admissions practices. The State Auditor said the conduct of Janet Napolitano, President of the UC was so egregious that California families deserved recompense. There is $55 billion dollars of our tax money sitting in the high speed rail account. The State should start writing California families a check for $160,000 (the increased cost of tuition to attend an out-of-state or private college or university). This is the real cause of the Varsity Blues College Admission Scandal and the explosion in student loan debt. 

The audit was in 2015- not one elected leader stood up for the 100,000 California families that have been financially damaged as a result.
