Transfer Admission Guarantees

Guaranteed Admission is more commonly referred to as a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program.  A TAG is a contractual agreement between you, Ventura College and a four-year  college or university.  Students who meet and maintain stated admission and major requirements are guaranteed admission to a specific four-year college or university.

Seven University of California (UC) campuses offer guaranteed admission to California community college students who meet specific requirements. By participating in a Transfer Admission Guarantee  (TAG) program, you can ensure your admission to a specific campus, which offer an early review of your academic record, early admission notification, and specific guidance on major preparation and general education coursework.

The specific guidelines students must follow are listed below at each University's website:
