UCSB TAG agreement

<p>Hello everyone,</p>

<p>I created my account today because I have a question regarding the TAG agreement for UC Santa Barbara. I am an an accounting major at my current college and would likely try to get into the Economics and Accounting major at UCSB.</p>

<p>I have a 4.0 G.P.A, decent e.cs, and have completed almost all of the classes that appear on assist.org. The thing is, I have been following the pattern for UC Davis' Economics major which allows me to take a class called Intro to Calc w/appls (commonly referred to as Business Calc in my school). In assist.org, it appears as if UCSB only accepts Calc 1 from my school which I wouldn't be able to take in the spring.</p>

<p>So what I want to know is would this mean that I am ineligible for both TAG and regular admission? Or is there some leeway with unfinished courses that appear in assist?</p>

<p>That’s strange…I looked up my CC to UCSB for Econ/Acctg and it says you can either take the BusCalc series or regular Calc series.</p>

<p>Anyways, from assist.org regarding transferring:</p>



<p>This means your major doesn’t require you to have certain courses completed before transferring. Now regarding TAG requirements, the only requirements you have are listed here at the bottom:</p>

<p><a href=“http://admissions.sa.ucsb.edu/pdf/UCSB%20Fall%20TAG.pdf[/url]”>http://admissions.sa.ucsb.edu/pdf/UCSB%20Fall%20TAG.pdf</a></p>

<p>If you have completed those requirements, your TAG should be accepted.</p>

<p>Thanks osiq! Well, I suppose I’ll just go through with it anyway. What do you think would give me a better shot at getting in with business calc instead of regular calc: through TAG or just regular application?</p>

<p>It really doesn’t matter! TAG is designed to force students to keep the GPA high and be on track with pre-reqs. You are currently on track, whether that means taking Calc or BusCalc it shouldn’t make any sort of difference in your TAG. </p>

<p>If you are already in BusCalc right now, finish up the series. No need to switch to the Calc series. Even if you haven’t started a Calculus series, I’d still recommend taking BusCalc since it is easier and you have a better shot at a higher grade which is ultimately your goal with TAG/applying.</p>

<p>Are you a community college student? TAG is only eligible for CC students. </p>



<p>This is not true for the Econ and Accounting major at UCSB. On assist.org</p>

<p>My mistake. Yes, it does say that you do need a stats+calc, or 2 calcs.</p>

<p>Nonetheless @migman, you’re in good shape as long as you finish up that BusCalc series.</p>

<p>Thanks you guys! I think I’m gonna use TAG on UCSB and just apply through the regular process for UC Davis.</p>
