Hello. I am curious to know about the TAG (Transfer Admission Guarantee) program, if possible. As the acronym suggests this guarantees admission into the CSU and the UC system. I want to know the requirements that have to be completed in Mission College which will ensure eligibility in this program.

The UC Tag guarantees to one UC school, but it depends upon on your GPA
Karthik Rajagopalan

Does UC TAG even works for UC Engineering schools ?
Frank Yeung

I believe so, ASSIST is a good website to check what requirements one needs for a particular major at a CSU or UC when transferring from Mission
Justin Crabajales
46:50
Yes I tagged to UC Santa Cruz and I got accepted, so the engineering department will send you a email that you accepted
Frank Yeung

It gives you a list of what Mission courses you need to take to transfer for your major

No specific counselor you need to speak to. All our counselors are wonderful and will be able to help. :)

I also recognize that the question asked about academic counselors-- my academic counselor was my department chair and I did not use the university's academic counselors other than for graduation.
Dorothy Stone (she/her)
52:56
I met with my major advisor (department chair) once per semester and we usually went over a checklist of classes to ensure I was meeting the degree requirements.
Karthik Rajagopalan
55:53
Just to be specific, department chair in Mission College, right ?My son is a AS-T (Mathematics) in Mission College, and wants to transfer to a UC school (Computer Science)
Karthik Rajagopalan
56:22
So I should talk to the Mathematics department Chair in Mission College ?
