Transfer Success Pathway

Dual Admission to the CSU


Discover a new path to the California State Uni​​versity from a California Community College

Are you enrolling in one of California’s 116 community colleges this fall? You could be eligible for a dual admission program that gives you the chance to pursue your bachelor’s degree at one of our 23 universities.

The new Transfer Success Pathway program is designed to increase access to the CSU. If you faced academic, financial or personal hardships that prevented you from attending the CSU, this program could help you get to the CSU to earn your degree.

Eligible students can apply to the program in order to:

  • Enter into an agreement with the CSU and receive guaranteed admission to the degree program and campus of your choice (if all requirements are met)
  • Receive personalized guidance from CSU representatives to create an educational plan that will help you transfer within three years or less
  • Map out your coursework using the CSU Transfer Planner portal to ensure you’re on track for your degree

As guided by the Governor’s Council for Post-Secondary Education Recovery with Equity report and the Postsecondary Education Trailer Bill (AB 132)​, the Transfer Success Pathway program will help improve the student transfer experience while addressing potential equity issues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, issues with academic preparation and other challenges facing high school students.
