Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) is a program that offers students from a community college guaranteed admission to several colleges and universities. The writing of a TAG contract enables qualified students to be guaranteed admissions one year prior to transfer.

SMC students can secure guaranteed admission to a variety of UC, CSU, and private colleges. However, you must meet certain requirements and deadlines, and in some case, fill out a contract.
