TRANSFERRING TO CSU
Here you can start your Transfer Success Pathway and see the articulation agreement between your community college and your California State University program. If you’re finishing high school in spring 2023 and enrolling in a community college in fall 2023, you can start your transfer pathway now.
If you have completed 59 or fewer transferable semester units, or 89 or fewer transferable quarter units, by the time you plan to enter a CSU, you are considered a lower-division transfer (LDT) applicant. Learn more about lower division transfer here.
If you will have at least 60 semester or 90 quarter transferable units completed by the time you enter a CSU, you are considered an upper-division transfer applicant. Learn more about upper division transfer here.
CSU campuses require that all admission requirements (Golden 4, units, GPA requirements, supplemental requirements) must be completed by the end of spring for fall admission or by the end of fall for spring admission. Learn more here.
