The California State University (CSU) Dual Admission program is called Transfer Success Pathway (TSP). The TSP guarantees future CSU admission to recent high school graduates entering a California community college who are committed to transferring within three years.

This program gives students clearer direction and greater confidence on their path to a four-year degree. Students can use a CSU Transfer Planner to plan for transfer to the CSU.


The TSP program is for first-time, first-year California community college students who meet one of the following requirements:

  1. Graduated high school with the class of 2023
  2. Graduated high school with the class of 2022 and took a gap year (did not attend any college directly after high school)

TSP Benefits

CSU TSP applicants will:

  1. Enter into an agreement with one CSU and receive guaranteed admission to the degree program and campus of your choice (based on eligible majors at each CSU).
    • To maintain this guaranteed admission, students must complete either an Associate Degree for Transfer or established courses of transfer at a community college within 3 years
  2. Receive personalized guidance from CSU representatives to create an educational plan to help you transfer in three years or less.
  3. Map out your coursework using the CSU Transfer Planner portal to ensure you're on track for your degree.
