Our Best Answer - Can I change my major after submitting my Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG)?

Transfer Admissions Guarantee (TAG)

Changing your major would void your TAG. Students who change their major will be reviewed for regular admission to the major specified on the UC application. If changing your major is the only reason you don't meet TAG criteria, and you have the required major preparation in your new major (if applicable), then you will be a strong candidate for admission.

Please refer to our Transfer Major Preparation Guide PDF on the UCSB Admissions Publications and Videos page for more information.
