Transfer Planning


About the Transfer Planning Website

This website is designed to help students facilitate transfer from De Anza College to the California State University (CSU), University of California (UC), and California independent colleges and universities and out-of-state institutions.


As part of its transfer services mission, De Anza College has established formal articulation agreements and a transfer admission agreement/guarantee (TAA/TAG) program with select colleges and universities.


Successful transfer requires careful planning and course selection. Students can learn more about transfer requirements and guaranteed admission opportunities to four-year colleges and universities by enrolling in Counseling (COUN) 50: Introduction to College*.
After completing COUN 50 students are encouraged to consult periodically with a De Anza College counselor or academic adviser to review and update their educational plan for transfer.

Eligible students may apply for a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) to one of six participating University of California (UC) campuses. UC offers TAG applicants early review of academic records, early admission notification and specific guidance about major preparation and general education coursework.


To complete a TAG application, students will use the UC Transfer Admission Planner (TAP) a tool designed to help students plan and track their progress toward meeting UC's minimum admission and TAG requirements.


Learn how to create and use a TAP account by registering for a UC TAP Workshop offered by the De Anza College Transfer Center.  To register online, visit the Transfer Workshops & Information Sessions page.
