The Benefits of Signing a TAG/TAA

By singing a TAG/TAA you will get:

  • get guaranteed admission to one of the nine colleges or universities that PCC has agreements with
  • a specific plan of action to ensure you satisfy the admissions requirements
  • work closely with a PCC counselor to carefully plan the your academic work
  • have direct access to university representatives and current information pertaining to your admissions or changes they should know about

When to Sign a TAG/TAA

When you can sign a TAG/TAA depends on the school you plan to sign it with. Once you meet the units completed requirement, your agreement can be written up to one year before you transfer. For example, a TAA may be written in September for the next year's fall term at UC Davis.
