ADT Transfer Degrees

The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act

(SB 1440 – Padilla)
signed into legislation on September 29, 2010,
enables the California Community Colleges and California State
University to collaborate on the creation of Associate of Arts Degree
(AA) program for transfer. A California Community College student who
has earned the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) will be granted priority
admission to the CSU into a similar baccalaureate (BA) degree program
with a guarantee of junior standing as long as the student meets all
prescribed admission requirements.  Once admitted, the student will only
be required to complete 60 additional prescribed semester units to qualify for
the similar baccalaureate degree.  

For more information about the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT), students may
contact their local community
college transfer center or visit:

ADT Priority Admission Consideration

Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) applicants are guaranteed
priority admission over all other transfer students when applying to a
local or non impacted campus or priority admission consideration to an
impacted campus when applying to a CSU baccalaureate (BA) degree program
that has been deemed similar to the student’s community college area of
emphasis. (NOTE: SB 1440 does not guarantee a student admission for a
specified major or campus, but requires the California State University
to grant a student priority admission consideration to the local CSU
campus and to a program or major that is similar to the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) as determined by the California State University.)  

ADT
Verification

To be eligible for the admission priority consideration, California
Community College Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) applicants must submit verification
that they have or are finishing the remaining requirements for the

Colleges have established a priority schedule for Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) eligible students.

    college they are attending.
  • The community college will provide eligible applicants with an
    official document that indicates remaining requirements for the
    ADT degree.
  • Transfer applicants must send a copy of the evaluation form to
    the CSULA Office of Admissions and Recruitment by the stated
    admission term’s ADT verification deadline.
  • A final transcript showing completion of the Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) must be submitted to the CSULA Office of
    Admissions and Recruitment by the stated admission term’s final
    official transcript deadline.
