The UC TAG application is now part of the UC Transfer Admission Planner.  TAG applicants can apply for a TAG with only one UC campus.  Students can access and complete the online form without meeting with a Mission College counselor, however, students are highly encouraged to attend one of the UC TAG workshops in order to reduce errors in their applications. Students can register for a workshop at the Transfer Center by calling (408) 855-5115.

UC TAG application period for Fall 2014 admission: September 1 - 30, 2013.
