Included here is a summary of the verification process and resources for CCC and CSU users.
California Community College transfer applicants that meet the CSU minimum admission eligibility, are awarded an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT/AA-T & AS-T) and apply to a program that has been deemed similar at the CSU are given priority admission consideration to impacted campus or programs and are guaranteed admission to a CSU campus.
The ADT eVerify site is an online portal that allows community colleges to access the roster of CSU applicants who have indicated they are pursuing an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) and verify the status of ADT degrees for students directly with CSU campuses.
CSU campuses grant priority admission based on the student’s transfer institution verification before the campus receives the student’s official transcript showing the degree awarded.
2020-2021 Verification Timeline
In the Education section of the Cal State Apply application, transfer applicants select Transferring from an ADT-eligible Associate’s Degree Program and identify the Community College and ADT program. After the priority application deadline, student reported degree information is collected and posted by the Chancellor’s Office to the eVerify site.
Applicants who do not identify as an ADT transfer student will not be included in the verification process. Students who later need to correct their application and declare the ADT must contact each CSU campus to which they applied and request to update their information. They then follow up with the community college to provide a paper verification and the student submits the verification to each CSU campus. If the correction is reported early, CSU campuses do have the option of manually adding applicants to the site, eliminating the need of a paper form.
Verification by the community college granting the degree is the most important step in the verification process. CSU grants admission priority based on the verification in advance of the official transcript. The majority of the verifications are for students scheduled to complete the degree before the admit term but after admission decisions are made.
If verification is not completed in the eVerify site by the established deadline, colleges must provide verification to the student to submit. This only needs to happen after the eVerify site is closed. If it is done prior, the CCC should assign the eVerify ADT Eligibility status of "Verification provided directly to student".
To avoid instances in which a student's conditional admission to an impacted program or campus is rescinded, it is important that the community colleges complete a degree evaluation for each student before submitting the ADT degree status on the ADT eVerify site.
Email notification is sent to applicants who were assigned an eligiblity status of Not Verified, Will Complete after Fall (Winter/Spring) or Wil Complete after Spring (Fall). Students can discuss with the college reasons for the status and work to resolve outstanding requirements. The CCC can update the status to verified in eVerify before site closes or by paper verification afterwards. Students who remain unverified due to missing requirements or misreported degree information are directed to contact the CSU campus Admission Office to discuss any concerns on the impact to their application.
Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) Applicant Communication, Academic Year 2019-2020
After eVerify is closed to updates, CSU Admission users login and download the verification data for their applicants. The information is used to make admission decisions.
CSU users have access to view eVerify data during the window CCC users are completing verifications. Communication with students about missing verifications should not happen until after the site closes unless the student is missing from the site (did not report ADT on Cal State Apply application) and must request a verification directly from the CCC.
Receipt of the official transcript with the awarded AA-T or AA-T posted is the final verification. The deadline to submit official transcripts may vary slightly for each CSU but generally, fall admission requires final official transcripts by July 15, spring admission requires official transcripts by October 15.
The offer of admission to applicants who do not meet the condition of final verification and whose admission was based primarily on the AA-T and AS-T may be rescinded.
