Fall 2023 Admission Cycle
Applicants should refer to the
Verifying ADT Status for Transfer Applicants section in the Cal State Apply Help Center for information on the verification process.
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.
2022-2023 Verification Timeline
Access to the eVerify site is for authorized community college and CSU campus staff only.
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.
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 may 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".
For applicants who misreported their ADT program or ADT college, or applied as an Upper Division Transfer, the college can provide a verification form which the applicant is responsible for submitting to each CSU campus where they applied.
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.
A confirmation email notifying applicants of their self-reported ADT, required criteria for the degree, and recommended steps is sent to all ADT applicants who applied by the priority filing deadline.
A verification email notification is sent to applicants one to two days following the eligibility status posting by the community college. Applicants are instructed to log into their Cal State Apply account to view the status and to refer to the Help Center page for information about what the status means.
Once eVerify closes, applicants with a blank status will be sent communication about the missing verification. They are directed to the CSU campus if there are concerns about the impact on their admission standing. Applicants without a verified degree and/or who are earning an ADT degree that is not similar to the CSU major are evaluated as upper division transfers.
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.
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.
