CSU Transfer Guarantee (ADT)

An ADT (Associate Degree for Transfer) GUARANTEES Cuesta students, who earn an AS-T or AA-T, admission into a CSU (California State University) bachelor degree program under a "similar" major. The guarantee itself means that students who earn ADT degree and meet the CSU minimum eligibility requirements are guaranteed admission to a CSU, but not necessarily to a particular campus or major. For more information, visit A Degree with a Guarantee.

  • Cuesta-SLO currently offers 26 CSU-approved "Transfer Degrees."
  • Cuesta-NCC currently offers 6 of the 25 fully obtainable transfer degrees on the Paso Robles Campus.
