UCSD transfer GPA

kzousekzouse Posts: 3Registered User New Member
edited January 2011 in UC Transfers
So the new TAG for 2009-2010 regarding Fall 2009 states that you must have a minimum GPA of at least a 3.0 by the end of THIS Fall through Spring 2009, UC math and English requirement finished by the end of THIS Fall, 60 units completed ( by the end of spring?...) and IGETC completed, (also by the end of Spring..?)

Which ever way it may be, I have successfully fulfilled the units and math and english section by the end of this fall. HOWEVER, I now have a weighted GPA of about 3.03, and I didn't do so hot this semester, which will make my GPA drop to at least a 2.8.....completely voiding my TAG.

What are my chances of getting into UCSD with a 2.8 GPA???

IGETC completed
60 Units Completed
Poli Sci Major with all major reqs completed.
My only problem is my 2.8 GPA that I will possibly have by the end of this semester.
And I'm really really stressing out about it b/c I've been in CC for 3 years...I really want in to UCSD.

    I was told by an advisor at UCSD that having over a 2.9 after fall semester is all you really need for most majors, as long as you clear all the required courses. And as far as not having completed the math and english by fall, I'm positive that's not the case. You just need to finish them with a C or better by the end of spring semester. You still have a decent chance with a 2.8 I think, hopefully you have an upward trend!

    Do you have a TAG agreement?
  • kzousekzouse Posts: 3Registered User New Member
    yeah I have the new TAG agreement, I checked it when I applied, so I'm eligible technically. What I'm saying is, my agreement is going to be void b/c my 3.03 is possibly dropping to a 2.8-2.9 range by the end of this semester

    "And as far as not having completed the math and english by fall, I'm positive that's not the case"

    From UCSD TAG website under eligibility:
    "Both UC English courses and the UC math course must be completed by the end of Fall term prior to Fall admission, and by the end of Summer term prior to Winter admission"

    You have great motivation to raise your GPA.

    for UCSD TAG, do you need to complete your GE's in sequences?
  • sstorysstory Posts: 567Registered User Member
    no, you did though before fall 09'.
  • turkeeyturkeey Posts: 243Registered User Junior Member
    SORRY, HELP PLEASE!!!:

    do you HAVE to finish your major pre-reqs to sign TAG, or just most of them? i'm a biology major, so i don't know if its different.

    PLEASE HELP!! THANKS

    Just wait until your transfer center opens after the holiday and you can get all the info you need. You have plenty of time now as this years tag deadline just passed, and it can't be submitted early.

    do you HAVE to finish your major pre-reqs to sign TAG, or just most of them?

    No. The requirements are clear-cut and stated above. You do have to finish all the pre-reqs by the end of Spring for your TAG to be valid, but not before signing the TAG, which should have happened this semester (I think?).

    I've been looking for information specifically about that (major pre-reqs) concerning UCSD's TAG, do you have a link or information about where you read or heard that?
  • turkeeyturkeey Posts: 243Registered User Junior Member
    do you have to clear all pre-reqs even for high unit majors? because i heard that for people who major in engineering and bio (i'm a bio major), they don't necessarily have to finish all, just most of them, but i wasn't too sure..

    Grey,

    When I talked to a UCSD Admissions Rep about my TAG (econ mang.), I was informed that I didn't have to have my 100% of my pre-reqs completed. However, she did say it would be beneficial so if I transfer, I would hit the ground running...so to speak
