Transfer Alliance Project (TAP)


A highly successful academic advising and enrichment program serving more than 1,000 underserved students at 45 California community colleges. Participants receive support services designed to facilitate their transfer to the University of California and other baccalaureate-granting institutions. 

Since its founding in 1999, TAP has served over 18,000 students and around 80% of TAP participants who applied to UC Berkeley were admitted to Cal.  TAP alumni thrive at UC Berkeley and have been admitted to graduate programs at Harvard, Yale, Brown, Stanford School of Medicine/Law School, Berkeley Law, University of Virginia School of Law, Oxford, and others. 

Financed by a combination of private and public funds, all services are provided free of charge.
