UCLA TAP Honors Instructions for Application

If you will be certified as an Honors student at Pierce College, please follow these steps in the UC Application, feel free to forward to students.

  • Select UCLA first-choice major and alternate major on UC application
  • Record participation in LA Pierce Honors Transfer Program:
    • Record participation at the following sections of the UC Application
    • “Activities & Awards” -> “Educational Programs” -> “Other”
      • Under “Other” category under the Education Programs, write in LA Pierce Honors Transfer Program and provide a description.
        *It is not recommended to list UCLA Transfer Alliance Program instead of “LA Pierce Honors Transfer Program” for two main reasons: 1) UCLA TAP certification does not occur until after the UC application is submitted and 2) By reporting the LA Pierce Honors Transfer Program, all of the UC campuses an applicant applies to will be able to see that the student participated in an honors curriculum instead of thinking the participation is only targeted to UCLA.
  • Reporting Honors Courses:
    • LA Pierce College honors courses do not appear as Honors Level in the UC Application. It is highly recommended that instead of manually listing an honors course in the application, instead list the regular version of the course that appears in the drop-down menu.
      • If you wish for the UC Application readers to know that certain courses at LAPC were taken as Honors, you can report these courses in the “Additional Comments” section of the application- either in the “Additional Comments” section of the Academic History portion, or in the “Additional Comments” section at the very end of the UC application. You can make a brief statement saying, “I would like the readers to know that the following courses listed in my application were completed at the Honors Level through the LA Pierce Honors Transfer Program”
  • Be sure to follow up with Honors Program and look out for critical emails regarding your next steps to receive UCLA Transfer Alliance Program certification.
