The Transfer Alliance Program is a collaboration between the Honors/Scholars Program at California community member colleges and UCLA College in conjunction with Undergraduate Admission. The program is designed to foster academic excellence at the community college level and to promote diversity and retention in the UCLA transfer population. Member colleges provide enriched general education curricula emphasizing critical thinking, writing, and research through their Honors/Scholars programs.

Community college students work closely with faculty and receive on-going academic advising from counselors assigned to their school’s Honors/Scholars Program. TAP Faculty Directors and Counselors meet twice a year with UCLA colleagues to stay abreast of admissions issues and programmatic developments at UCLA.

Students who have completed the Honors/Scholars Program at their community college receive priority consideration for admission to UCLA College. Admitted TAP students are eligible to apply for scholarships reserved for the Transfer Alliance Program.
