The Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) program  guarantees that every student who earns an AA-T or AS-T degree from a California Community College will be admitted to a California State University (CSU) campus.

Applicants who have a verified* AA-T or AS-T degree and meet CSU upper-division transfer admission eligibility requirements and are not admitted to the CSU of their choice will be redirected to an alternate campus that has space. This is called redirection.

ADT applicants accepted to at least one CSU campus will not be redirected.

During the application process on Cal State Apply, ADT applicants who apply to impacted campuses or programs can identify up to two alternate campuses. Available alternate campuses are identified by the CSU Chancellor’s Office prior to the application filing period but can change based on campus capacity.

If you don’t identify an alternate campus on your application, you will be redirected to the closest alternate CSU campus. You cannot change your alternate campus selection after you’ve submitted your application.

Redirection occurs after all campuses report their admission decisions for a given semester or quarter to Cal State Apply. AA-T or AS-T verified applicants who are denied admission to all of the CSU campuses they selected due to capacity are then identified.

If this happens to you, your application will be routed to the redirected campus and you will be sent a notification by email. You will see the redirected campus in your Cal State Apply account on the “Check Status” page.

Your redirected campus will then contact you about the next steps in the process.

*AA-T or AS-T verification for applicants who applied during the priority application period (i.e., by November 30) and selected ADT in their Extended Profile on Cal State Apply is done by the community college via an online verification process.
