UCLA Transfer Alliance Program

CRC is a member of the UCLA Transfer Alliance Program (UCLA TAP). UCLA TAP offers Honors students at member community colleges a priority admissions pathway to UCLA's College of Letters and Science, a more than 300% increase in your likelihood of being accepted for transfer admission to UCLA.

Priority admission via UCLA TAP is available only to majors in UCLA’s College of Letters and Science. (For a list of these majors, visit UCLA/College.) In addition to providing priority admissions, UCLA TAP provides students with the opportunity to apply to UCLA in both a primary major and an alternate major.

To qualify for TAP transfer, you must:

  • Qualify for transfer admission to UCLA
  • Apply to UCLA via the regular transfer admissions process
  • Be UCLA TAP certified by the CRC's Honors Program during the spring semester following the fall semester of your application to UCLA

The core of eligibility for TAP certification is CRC's 15-unit Honors Certificate. To be eligible for TAP certification, you must have completed, or be on track to complete, CRC's 15-unit Honors Certificate with a GPA of 3.5 or better.
