Transferring from Citrus College to a CSU with an ADT


Transferring with an ADT: Tips for completing your CalStateApply Application This tutorial is designed for students applying to transfer to a Cal State with and Associate’s Degree for Transfer, also known as an ADT, AA-T or AS-T. As you work on your CalStateApply application, it’s important that you correctly document the degree you will be completing here at Citrus College. This is especially important for students completing an ADT because there are some potential benefits associated with the degree. If you’re not sure whether or not you will be completing an ADT, it’s ESSENTIAL that you speak with a counselor BEFORE you submit the CalStateApply application. You cannot change your degree in the application once it’s been submitted. Let’s dive into some important tips for ADT students and the CalStateApply application. The first place you will be asked about the ADT is when you create a CalStateApply account. It looks like this. If you select the wrong degree when making your account, you can edit it by clicking your name at the top right, and then click Extended Profile. ADT degrees are listed as either Associate’s of Arts for Transfer or Associate’s of Science for Transfer. If you don’t know if your degree is an Associate’s of Arts for Transfer or an Associate’s of Science for Transfer, check the list of ADTs on our website. The next place you will be asked about the ADT is in the Academic History section of the application under Colleges Attended. Make sure your degree matches what you listed in your Extended profile. If it doesn’t match, you will get an error message when you try to submit your application. Thirdly, there is a section on the ADT under Supporting Information. This section will be auto-populated by what you entered in the Extended Profile. Enter your Citrus College Student ID number here. You will also list when you plan to complete the degree. If you have or will be receiving another ADT from Citrus College, you can also enter it here. Remember, you only receive the benefits of the ADT if you apply to a program that has been approved as “Similar” to the ADT. This can be tricky especially for majors that have specific concentrations. Be sure to verify that the program is similar by using ADegreewithAGuarantee.com to check. If you select a program on the application that is not similar, you will get an error message like this. You can either move forward as a general applicant or you can choose a major that is similar to your ADT. Thanks for watching!
