Transfer Admission Guarantee University of Illinois Chicago

What is it?

The Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) program is a partnership between specific Community Colleges and the University of Illinois at Chicago that offers a guaranteed transfer pathway to several UIC programs. TAG offers certainty to parents and students who want to transfer to UIC rather than attend as first year students.
