The Cabrillo Honors Transfer Program is a proud member of the UCLA Transfer Alliance Program (UCLA TAP) - since 2010. Cabrillo Honors students are eligible to be TAP Certified upon application to UCLA. TAP certification gives students priority admission into the College of Letters and Sciences majors at UCLA. Cabrillo's Honors students enjoy an 80% admit rate into UCLA College of Letters and Sciences. Requirements:
UCLA TAP is not available for the Film and Television major or for the Art major. Only majors in the College of Letters and Sciences Majors.
Note re: "switching" majors once admitted: Admitted students are not allowed to switch into:
Psychology, Economics, Business Economics, Mathematics/Economics or Financial Actuarial Mathematics 11/2016
Students should indicate on their UC application (submitted in the Fall prior to transfer), if they expect to meet the requirements for TAP Certification by the end of the Spring prior to transfer. In January, UCLA will send a list of applicants to the Honors Director at Cabrillo who will verify eligibility and contact you to sign the Certification Form by the end of February. NOTE: the requirements for UCLA TAP Certification are the same as for Honors Scholar Designation: at least 15 units of Honors coursework with a 3.4 (UC) transferable GPA.
Students who will be TAP Certified have the benefit of choosing an Alternate Major on their UC Application for the College of Letters and Sciences. ONLY TAP Certified students have this opportunity; and you do not have to complete all of the major preparation for this Alternate Major prior to transfer; though you should have at least started it. Most students who are not admitted into their first choice major are admitted into the Alternate major. HOWEVER, the Alternate Major you indicate on your UC application
CANNOT be one of the highly-selective (impacted) majors listed below:
Pre-Financial Actuarial Mathematics
Human Biology & Society (B.A. and B.S.)
Pre-International Development Studies
