Do you need to know when the TAP (Transfer Alliance Program) application is due for UCLA?

If you wish to attend UCLA starting in the fall you will need to apply during the preceding year through normal means by the regular fall deadline (usually November 30th). In addition to the regular UCLA application, you will also need to fill out a TAP Certification Form. Your TAP Certification Form will not be due until the beginning of the spring semester immediately preceding the fall you intend to start at UCLA. Once you return from winter break and have your fall grades drop by the CCSF Honors Office with your official or unofficial transcripts. Be sure to fill out a TAP Certification Form when you drop off your transcripts. After reviewing your entire transcripts the CCSF Honors Coordinator will determine if you are eligible for the TAP program. Among other things, he will be checking to be sure you have completed or intend to complete 15 units of honors work before you graduate from CCSF and that your overall CCSF GPA is 3.0 or higher. Assuming you get the approval and sign-off of the Honors Program Coordinator, you will be asked to meet with a counselor in the Transfer Center in the Science Building. The transfer counselor will need to sign the TAP Certification Form too. This form should then be sent to UCLA. If you are accepted by the TAP program, your application to UCLA will be given priority treatment. You may also be eligible for a scholarship. It should be noted that acceptance into the TAP program is not “guaranteed admission”. For more information about UCLA’s TAP program please visit the web page they sponsor on the topic: http://www.ugeducation.ucla.edu/tap

The deadline for UCLA TAP Certification forms to be turned in to Cloud 214 will be announced on the CCSF Honors Program Yahoo! Group (mailing list). Please see the Honors Program web site for the link to the Yahoo ! group . Please include all unofficial college transcripts when turning in the form. After the Honors Program Coordinator signs the form the deadline for the UCLA TAP certification forms to be signed by a counselor in the Transfer Center will be will be announced on the CCSF Honors Program Yahoo! Group (mailing list). Students must schedule an appointment in order to get the Transfer Counselor's signature. Late forms will not be accepted. Students can download the form from http://www.ugeducation.ucla.edu/tap/ . Please contact Sami Kudsi (skudsi@ccsf.edu) if you have any questions.

Mr. Kudsi believes that "great speakers are not born, but made. And they make themselves as a result of their passion, creativity and work ethic. The key to overcoming your public speaking anxiety is to: (1) let the nervousness move through you and do not resist it; (2) quiet your negative self-talk; and (3) know you are not alone and you are not the only one who is nervous."

Mr. Kudsi is the Coordinator of the CCSF Honors Program. For more details see
