The UC Dual Admission pilot program is for California freshman applicants who applied but were not admitted to a UC campus. Dual Admission is an invite-only, conditional admission guarantee to a UC campus with a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program.

Participants are offered extra support from the UC while they fulfill their transfer requirements. Students can utilize the UC Transfer Planner to plan for transfer to the UC.


The UC Dual Admission program is for any California freshman applicant (including resident students and students who qualify for AB 540 benefits) who has:

  • Applied as a high school senior for freshman admission for the fall 2023, 2024, or 2025 term.
  • Applied but is not admitted to a UC campus.
  • A UC GPA of at least 3.0 at the time of application.
  • Missed one or more A to G subject requirements at the time of high school graduation.
  • Graduated from a California high school.

If you are not eligible, we encourage you to ask the Transfer Center about a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG).

UC Dual Admission Invitation

If you receive an invitation to UC Dual Admission:

  1. Learn about the UC Transfer Admission Guarantee. As part of UC Dual Admission, you are guaranteed based on meeting the TAG requirements for the year you begin taking classes at Sacramento City College, not the year you start at the UC campus.
  2. Select your top choice UC Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) Campus and TAG Major.
  3. Establish and maintain your UC Transfer Plar.
