(Transfer Alliance Program)
UCLA TAP | www.UCLA.edu
The Transfer Alliance Program is a collaboration between local community college Honors/Scholars Programs and the UCLA College of Letters and Science in conjunction with Undergraduate Admissions and Relations with Schools. 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 community colleges provide enriched general education curricula emphasizing critical thinking, writing, and research through their Honors/Scholars programs.
Students who have completed the Honors Program at IVC receive priority consideration for admission to the UCLA College of Letters and Science. Admitted TAP students are also eligible to apply for scholarships reserved for the TAP-certified students. The transfer rate to UCLA for students who complete the Honors Program is significantly higher than that of non-honors students. Transfer rates for IVC Honors Program students generally run between 80 and 90% compared to 20 to 30% for non-honors IVC students.
