Tag 2013

<p>so we all know that the UC TAG gpa req for UCSB was raised for fall 2012 transfer students from a 3.0 to 3.2. I was just wondering how often they change that gpa req. I know they update the tag annually but do you think theres a possibility that they will raise it again higher than a 3.2 for fall of 2013 transfer students???</p>

<p>thank you</p>

<p>Anything could be possible. It’s entirely up to the school if they want to change it or not.</p>

<p>I second lawlking- There are too many factors to be sure. TAG has changed immensely over the years, so there’s no predicting (accurately) how it will change in years to come.</p>

<p>Anyone else have any suggestions?!?</p>

<p>Nope. UCSB’s TAG gpa requirement was 3.2 since year 2010 or so. It was the school with the highest gpa requirement for TAG until recently.</p>

<p>UCSD raised their TAG from 3.0 to 3.5 in Fall 2011. However, an article on UCSD website states they will be eliminating the TAG program this year for good.</p>

<p>But to answer your question! I have a feeling that UCSD will remove their TAG, and those mid-tier UC schools like UCD, UCI and UCSB will eventually raise it up to 3.5</p>

<p>I guess I was wrong. UCSB raised their gpa from 3.0 to 3.2 for year 2011.</p>

<p>But TAG for year 2012, UCSB did not make any change. Let’s just hope they don’t raise it up to 3.5</p>

<p>^^They still can change it.</p>

<p>UCSD changed twice within 2-years.
In Fall 2011, UCSD raised TAG from 3.0 to 3.5.
For Fall 2012, UCSD may be eliminating the TAG program.</p>

<p>I hope not:(?</p>

<p>Why would you say UCD is a mid-tier school when comparing it to UCSD? I’m just curious.</p>

<p>It is not known if UCSD is eliminating their tag yet. They are still unsure whether it will continue. For fall 2012 tag, they received significantly less applicants for tag so they might continue the tag program.</p>

<p>I expect it depends on the applicant pool this year. If they feel they should raise it, I’m sure they will.</p>

<p>False. UCSD decided on Dec 8, 2011 to eliminate tag. It will continue though for current CC students. </p>

<p>“According to Powers, community college students who acquired full-time status by or before Fall 2011 will still be eligible to transfer to UCSD under TAG. The change will affect students who start at community colleges next year.”</p>

<p>Thats great! No news on UCSB TAG 2013? Or when it will be announced?</p>

<p>its all depend on the number of applicant. Stay tune, anything can happen.</p>

<p>Any update my friends?</p>

<p>I was talking to an admissions rep. at UCI about TAG for next year in case I didnt get in this year and she said that the University wont discuss TAG requirements till the summer. When I pressed her a little more about the matter tho, she hinted at either the GPA req being raised, how high tho, idk, but being that UCI was the 3rd most applied to UC this year, the program may be cut next year =/</p>
