A TAG is a tool that outlines a prescribed sequence of classes for you to take at Mohave Community College to prepare you for your desired degree at ASU. The TAG outlines all of the specific classes that are required for your ASU degree. This will help you to know which classes you can take at the community college. Each TAG has an AGEC (Arizona General Education Curriculum) block and an associate’s degree built into it and a requirement that you achieve the necessary grade point average (GPA) for the program.
There are several benefits. Students who complete a TAG within three years of signing up, are guaranteed admission into the specified ASU degree program they desire. TAG students are also locked into a specific tuition cohort while at ASU, which provides a reduced tuition rate.
ASU currently has 250 degree programs to choose from. At this time, TAGs are being developed for the most popular majors for community college transfer students. For a list of TAGs that are currently available, please visit: www.mohave.edu/transferasu. More TAGs will be developed over time.
The TAG program is designed for students who already have selected a major and know what they want to study. If you are unsure of your major, please meet with your academic advisor or career services staff member to determine the best major for you. Since a TAG outlines all of the courses required for a particular degree, a TAG can be a great way for you to compare majors and find the best fit for you.
Students may spend different amounts of time finishing their coursework at the community college; however, to receive the benefits associated with the TAG, you must complete your TAG within three years starting from the time you sign up.
There is a specific TAG for each degree. If you change your major, you will also need to reset your “TAG start date,” which will affect your tuition cohort and three-year completion period.
The TAG is part of an exclusive partnership between Mohave Community College and Arizona State University. Each specific TAG leads to a specific degree at ASU. If you choose to attend a university other than ASU, it is likely that not all of those classes will be applicable at another university.
There is no cost to sign up for the TAG program. While you are at the community college, you will pay community college tuition and fees. While you are at ASU, you will pay university tuition and fees. However, because of your participation in TAG, you are also eligible for a special tuition program called the Tuition Commitment Program, which limits the tuition increases that will occur during completion of your bachelor’s degree.
The Tuition Commitment Program tuition rate is based on the student’s semester of acceptance in a TAG program and compliance with the TAG requirements. Please visit https://transfer.asu.edu/mohave for more information.
For more information about TAGs, please see your advisor at the community college. It is strongly suggested that you seek academic advisement each semester to ensure that you are staying on track and completing the appropriate courses. To speak with a Mohave Community College advisor, please visit our Advising page.
Once you are about a year away from transferring to ASU, we suggest that talk to an ASU Transfer Advisor. ASU Transfer Advisors are available via phone and occasionally in person to assist you with the transfer process. To find the appropriate ASU Transfer Advisor at Mohave Community College, please visit http://transfer.asu.edu/mohave.
