UCLA Transfer Alliance Program (UCLA TAP)

The UCLA Transfer Alliance Program (TAP) gives you the opportunity to enhance your ability to transfer to UCLA at the junior level from a California community college. Students are certified after completing the honors/scholars program at their community college and given priority consideration for admission to UCLA College of Letters and Science.

UCLA TAP Eligibility

CRC Students who complete a total of 15 units or more in honors-designated courses are eligible for special recognition as an Honors Scholar, a distinction that entitles the student to enhanced transfer and scholarship opportunities at select transfer colleges and universities, including UCLA, in whose Transfer Alliance Partnership CRC is a member.

CRC Honors Program

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs)

California community college transfer students with a GPA of 2.5 or higher are guaranteed admission to HBCU partner schools using either of the following two options:
