Associate Degree for Transfer

Transfer students who earned an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) and enroll at Sac State in a major that is deemed similar to their ADT major, are eligible to earn their bachelor’s degree in 60 semester units. ADT students should meet with an Academic Advisor and Major Advisor early to create an education plan and to learn more about maintaining eligibility for the 60 unit guarantee. 

Please note: this page is specifically for those with an ADT Agreement. For general info for all Transfer Students, please click here.

The Associate Degree for Transfer, also referred to as the ADT, was established through the Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act and Senate Bill 1440. A student may earn an Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) or Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) from a California Community College. Both degrees are considered ADT degrees. The ADT degrees were designed to provide a clear pathway to a CSU bachelor’s degree, by allowing students to complete an associate degree while satisfying lower division general education, lower division major requirements and meeting CSU minimum admission requirements. 

Transfer students who earn their ADT prior to enrolling at Sac State and are admitted to a similar major as their ADT major, are guaranteed to earn their bachelor’s degree from Sacramento State within 60 semester units. ADT students are also exempt from English 20, a Sacramento State graduation requirement.

Changing your major to a non-similar major, will void the 60 unit guarantee and it may cause delays in your time to degree since you may be held to additional major coursework. To view a list of similar majors click here.

Although changing your major does void the 60 unit guarantee, you will not lose your English 20 exemption.

Please consult with an advisor before changing your major.

Adding a minor may void the 60 unit guarantee and it may cause delays in your time to degree since you may be held to coursework for the minor that require you to complete more than 60 units to earn the bachelor’s degree and minor.

Although adding a minor may void the 60 unit guarantee, you will not lose your English 20 exemption.

Please consult with an advisor before declaring a minor.

Adding a second major will void the 60 unit guarantee and it may cause delays in your time to degree since you may be held to additional major coursework that requires more than 60 units to earn both bachelors’ degrees.

Although adding a second major does void the 60 unit guarantee, you will not lose your English 20 exemption.

Please see an advisor before declaring a second major.

Students who earn an ADT after enrolling at Sacramento State, will not be given the ADT 60 unit guarantee. These students will need to meet with an advisor to determine if the English 20 requirement will be waived.

Yes. Advisors will know that you earned an ADT major based on your transfer credit evaluation and a notation in the “Holds” section of the Student Center.

If you do not have an ADT notation, please contact Dena Lemus, ADT Coordinator, Academic Advising at lemusd@csus.edu or (916) 278-7777.

If you have questions please contact Dena Lemus, ADT Coordinator, Academic Advising at lemusd@csus.edu or (916) 278-7777.

Academic departments may have a separate advisor for ADT students, so please check with your major department for more information. Please click here to download a list of major advisors for ADT students separated by academic department. (last updated: 5/15/2018)

 

While the ADT 60 unit guarantee is not time bound, students can graduate in 2 years if they:

1.     Meet with Advisor(s) Meeting with an Academic and Department Advisor early and often, will help to ensure your fast track to graduation

2.     Enroll only in required courses. Enrolling in additional courses (double major, minor, etc.) may void this agreement and delay your path to graduation.

3.     Register for at least 15 units per semester You will need to earn 30 semester units per year to graduate in 2 years

4.     Successfully complete all required courses. Repeating courses will not count toward the 60 unit guarantee and will delay your graduation.

5.     Maintain continuous enrollment in the same academic major. Changing your major may impact your ability to graduate within 60 semester units. Contact the Office of the University Registrar to file a Leave of Absence Request, if you need to take time off after your first semester of enrollment.

6.     Register at your appointed time. Any delays in registering may limit your course choices and adversely affect compliance with the agreement.

7.     Satisfy all Sacramento State graduation requirements. You may have met some of these at the community college. Please meet with an Academic Advisor to be sure you have a plan to complete these requirements as part of your 60 units at Sac State.

8.     Check your messages regularly Important dates and deadlines are communicated to students via emails and the My Sac State Student Center. Remember to check them often so you don’t miss a deadline.
