T.A.P. is a comprehensive support program designed to assist under-represented students who are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university. Our goal is to facilitate a smooth transition from SBCC to a four-year institution.

Nationally Recognized

Excelencia in Education, a Washington, D.C.-based non-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate Latino student success in higher education, announced that Santa Barbara City College has been named a national finalist for SBCC’s Transfer Achievement Program (TAP) in the category of Examples of Excelencia at the Associate Level.

TAP’s profile was included in the 2010 edition of What Works for Latino Students in Higher Education: Examples of Excelencia Compendium. The compendium was widely distributed both electronically and in print later in the year to over 19,000 Excelencia constituents, key education organizations and policy leaders.
