Week of January 9TAP/Non-TAP Applicant Report sent (as an Excel workbook via e-mail) by Mary Ries (updates sent as necessary)

The TAP/Non-TAP Applicants Report reflects ALL students from a particular community college who have applied for admission to UCLA and provides detailed information on each applicant.

This report is one step in the process and is generated once applicant data are entered into the computer database. It is unlikely that the report can be generated any earlier than the date listed. The report is sent out as soon as it is received.

Use this report to identify students in your program who have applied to transfer to UCLA and should complete the TAP certification form to be eligible for priority consideration for admission to Letters and Science.

Friday, March 3Deadline to submit certification forms (by a trackable delivery method such as FedEx or Priority Mail), and list of certified students via e-mail.
