Tools for community college transfer students

Pepperdine welcomes community college transfer students interested in our Bachelor of Science in Management (BSM) program. The BSM is an evening and weekend bachelor's completion program designed for working professionals. Students may transfer in the spring, summer or fall trimesters.

The information below outlines the academic requirements needed to transfer from your current school to Pepperdine's BSM program.

What is a TAG?

A transfer admission guarantee, or TAG, is an agreement between Pepperdine University and the applicant that guarantees admission to the BSM program, provided that the applicant has satisfactorily completed all requirements listed on the agreement and any additional documents needed to complete the BSM application.

What is an Articulation Agreement?

An articulation agreement is an agreement between Pepperdine University and a community college that defines the coursework taken at the community college and how the courses can be used to satisfy a subject requirement needed to transfer to Pepperdine’s BSM program.
