UC Transfer Information

UC TAP is a free online tool to help prospective UC
transfer students track and plan their coursework.

The UC TAP tool is designed for use by students
transferring from California community colleges,
including those students who are seeking a Transfer
Admission Guarantee (TAG) with one of the six
participating UC campuses.

Students can use the Transfer Admission Planner to
enter their coursework (completed and planned) from
the very beginning of their college careers, or at any
point when they decide to transfer to a UC campus.
The planner helps students track their progress toward
meeting UC's minimum requirements, and allows UC
staff to communicate important information to
prospective transfer students.
