TAG for OOS student?

<p>Well, basically I had the idea of moving to California this summer. I'm done with Illinois. I just can't see myself being happy and successful here. I've always dreamed of moving to California as a child. The palm trees, the beaches, the warm weather, and the friendly people is what truly caught my eye. Anyways, I'm currently a high school senior and I plan on moving on my own. If I move to California during the summer and attend a CCC during the fall, will I be able to qualify for TAG? I've read that the only requirement for TAG, in terms of other than academics, is that you attend a CCC. Can anyone confirm this? Will I qualify for it?</p>

<p>Yes, you will be eligible for TAG if you attend California CC.</p>

Haha I see you're aware :) And thanks for your response :) Btw, is AP credit useful when transferring from a CCC to a UC? Will that AP credit be considered for those 60 credits ( I think that's what's required) that are required?</p>

<p>hahaha i think you will find that the people in states OTHER than california are generally nicer.
people are just so rushed around here.</p>

<p>Yes, AP units can be used to satisfy GE courses but you won't get any units for it.</p>

<p>Bump. Can anyone else verify that if I move after high school is over during the summer, will I be eligible for TAG, if I attend a CCC? (Although I won't be considered a resident of California)</p>

<p>@lawlking: What do you mean? You get college credit for successfully passing an AP exam. I passed some english AP exam and would have received college credit at my current CCC if I hadn't already taken the equivalent course at my other university (my previous university did not accept 3's, thus I had to take the course). That AP credit would have satisfied my English GE here at my CCC AND I would have counted for 3 units.</p>

<p>@Zyzz: You should have no problem qualifying for TAG if you attend a CCC. :)</p>

<p>Yup, you can even do 30 units in Illinois and then 30 at a CC in Cali (although it's easier to just start here). As long as you attend a CCC for 2 full terms and it's your last school before transferring you qualify.</p>

<p>Most schools have a unit cap on the amount of work they will accept from four year institutions. For this very reason, I could not TAG to UCSC (I had 28 units of coursework from Colorado State and they only accepted 20). Most of them have a high unit cap, except UCSC (of course!)...Not much of a big deal, but I did want to point that out. :)</p>

<p>^ They do indeed, but I should have been a little more clear, I meant 30 units at a CC in Illinois.</p>

<p>@kingdom actually you are right I got units confused with GPA. You won't get any GPA is what I meant.</p>

<p>I applied for FAFSA and I qualified for the Pell Grant. Does anyone know if you're given money when you attend a CC? Will I be given financial aid assistance, since I'm a OOS student that will be attending a CCC?</p>

<p>@ Zyzz- If you're qualified, you'll receive it. I'm paying OOS tuition at my CCC but they're still giving me all of the financial aid I qualified for (including the Pell Grant). :)</p>
