Transfer Admission Guarantee

Transfer simplified: Save time and money

Arizona State University is committed to serving all students in Arizona and providing accessible pathways to achieving their educational goals. The Transfer Admissions Guaranteed, or TAG, was created to assist students in planning their college course work to ensure a smooth transition to ASU.

As part of the program, while at a community college, students will receive guidance and have access tools to help plan their academic path to ASU. Our goal is to simplify the transfer process, give students the resources needed to have a positive transfer experience, and transfer the maximum number of credits that will apply to their ASU degree. Your first step is to build a Transfer Map, which will outline the courses you can complete prior to transfer. Then, sign up to participate in the Transfer Admission Guarantee.
