Associate Degree for Transfer

About the ADT

Important deadline:

If you stated on your CSU application that you will earn an Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT) from Foothill College by the end of the spring 2019, you must meet with a counselor to file an ADT graduation petition by March 1.

An ADT is a guaranteed pathway for transfer into the California State University (CSU) system.

There are two types of ADTs: Associate of Arts for Transfer (AA-T) and Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T).

Foothill offers 23 ADTs, with 10 offered fully online. See the list of ADTs offered.


An ADT gets you guaranteed admission to the CSU system with junior standing (not to a particular campus or program).

See more benefits to choosing the ADT, including the UC Transfer advantage.


Want to transfer to the CSU system? This degree could be for you. Always talk to your counselor about your plans.
